Thanks again Jon, I think I confused the issue somewhat, I meant I had turned the sharpening down to 0 this morning before taking some more images - I will try and upload some for comparison.

Re: Got myself an E-1!

Here are some from today, I turned down some of the camera jpg settings after yesterday's well received shots (), but conditions were quite different today:









All taken with the 12-60mm.

Thanks for looking

Iain

The E-1 has quite muted sharpening in-camera, which is why I suspect the over-sharpening we've seen is a post-processing issue when re-sizing for the Web.

That should have been fine In fact I use 230K limit for 800 pixel wide shots in LR.

I also acquired an E-1 and I'm so pleased with it. I've found that the E-1 produces more saturated images but I quite like it and I like both your goose shot and the waterfall.

Like you I'm still learning how to get the best out of it and this post has been very helpful.

What firmware version the camera has has never crossed my mind. How do you check?

Thumbs up Re: Got myself an E-1!

Got my E1 off this very forum, love it, although I will look at some of the suggested settings in this thread.

Re: Got myself an E-1!

The E1 is a stunning little camera, grossly underrated because of the 4/3rds sensor. Bought mine about a year after it was introduced; whilst the preview screen is a bit small, it does do the job and the menu system is refreshingly uncomplicated. For street photography, it's in it's element, being unobtrusive because you can wrap your hands around the body. The position of the on/off switch is excellent, and it's location is one of the things which I wish was continued over onto the E3,5 and OM-D. About the only failing I ever encountered with mine, was the grip material coming loose on the rear of the body. However, after a while I realised that without it, the buttons were a bit more easy to locate when not looking, or with gloves on, so never bothered replacing it.

As for the ultrasonic dust cleaner, that is just brilliant! So far, I have never encountered any dust and that's after changing the camera lenses in some fairly inhospitable locations. It's a little gem, and proves that you don't need buckets of megapixels to get good photographs.

Re: Got myself an E-1!

Three E-1 cameras? I'm more jealous of that than if you'd said three OM-D cameras! (Not that I'd kick an OM-D out of bed, no way.)

Stewart, all were Pre-Loved as I was not convinced to buy a brand new one! the first was 600 and others half of that (back up and macro lens bodies)
Now I am too stony broke to buy a second E-5 ... but happy
