Is the e-m10 mk2 still a good camera ? I guess IQ will be the same(ish) as the e-m1 and I want something for work related travel.
I was considering the x-t10 but when I put on a lens, it becomes comparatively large against the p12-32..
It is and I reckon it’s the sweet spot for m43, having all the functionality you will likely want yet still very compact.
HDEW have them in silver and black for £309 and £329 respectively.
E-M5 MkII in black at £469 too.
Well, I've placed an order for the black e-m10 mk2 via SRS at £299, less £65 cashback = £234. I figured you can't go wrong at that price
Great price for a great camera.
Wow what a bargain.

EM5 MkII and cheap Oly 40-150mm - heavy crop. Not near some other photos on this thread, but reasonably happy considering the crop and lens (price).

made the same decision. Purchased around the 20th - cash back already in my bank account! Now I just need to spend some time learning how to use it (coming from Panasonic).
Recently picked up an olympus Em1 mkii, and I am quite happy with it.
Time to sell the Em5 mkii to help pay for it
I'm just starting to try birds in flight.
On the E M1 mark ll, what focus settings are you chaps using?
I'm thinking sequential low with tracking should be right? - but what about size of focus point, AF sensitivity etc. etc.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I dont use tracking at all, against a clear sky and small fast birds all points, otherwise 5 or 9 points.
CAF 5 Points +1 I set 10fps and silent electronic shutter I find this to be a good start but single point if you know its a Herron or Egret size bird of cause it does depend on what bird your photographing and what its doing .
camera has arrived, battery charging. No lens ..yet
Anyone had an issue submitting a cashback request ? It says uploading file then gets to 98% and says "no file attached" and unchecks one of the boxes. Its done the same on a PC and ipad..
Not sure about Olympus, but with Panasonic you had to wait 30 days, they wouldn't allow a cash back form returned prior to that. But once it passes that 30 days it gets sorted quick enough, think I had my cash back in my account a week later.
You have to wait 35 days (that’s what Panasonic told me on the telephone) - if it’s within that time the website doesn’t allow you to get as far as trying to upload files.
Yeah probably more like it, mine was over Christmas/New year so would have been longer for me before I applied for it either way.
Oh, no mention of it on their website - I’ve emailed them so will see what they say.
Oh, and another “failed delivery” by Amazon. Or what it really means is they couldn’t be bothered to stop so marked it down as that..
No delay period mentioned just a cut off date.
Panasonic put the delay in to hope you forget IMO.
Thanks Alf - maybe I’ll try it from home in case works t’internet blocked me..
I think they put a delay in because people where claiming the cash back then returning the item.
yes they did ,I registered my camera and on day 35 they e.mailed me for details for the cash back ,be aware you have to clearly photograph your receipt with the date/dealer/model clearly displayed also your serial number info on the box this is added to the claim form when its submitted ,done mine the other day hope it gets here before saturday
Have managed to submit the claim this morning from home so maybe it was works system blocking it..
More froglets - sorry!

Got an expert shield screen protector but the corner is bowed so it doesn't lay flat
Sent them an email, apologies and they'll send out a new one tomorrow
Haven't got a lens until tomorrow though ( on the hunt for a p20 )
I'm quite impressed by the pancake 14-42 EZ. Slight crop iirc.
Trying out my old lens, 35mm macro of my Olympus E410 with a cheap (Non Olympus) adapter on my Pen-F

Tried a 40-150 f2.8 and 1.4 outside the dealers shop, i dont like what it does to background..

It is well known for having 'nervous' bokeh in some situations, especially with OOF highlights. Most people forgive it as it is so sharp but it can ruin images IMO, but still, it is my favourite lens.
I suppose if ime honest it was only a couple of the shots like the one above, the others where ok.
Agreed, I think it’s a fantastic piece of glass.
First few from my 60mm macro

well, i haven't used my e-m10 mk2 yet but i've set up the wifi. One thing that's clear is how s**te Nikon's Snapbridge is - Olympus just works, effortlessly. Nikon needs re-installing every time you try to use it
Been toldi cant spend any more for a while, the other day it was the 60mm macro and today the 40-150 f2.8 and 1.4.
Dull and wet outside but had to try it,
Been away for a while, no camera, it's good to see you back on MFT
Talking of no camera, on the lookout for a EM5Mkii so if anyone is considering starting a sale thread I'd appreciate a heads up
Does it need to be an EM5ii?
There are some cracking deals on the EM10ii going at the moment (see further above).
Literally just sold on in the sale threads
I'd looked at the EM10 MKII, they're so cheap, but I know I would only regret not getting an EM5
