Lens Settings

I have a number of 35mm lenses that I have added in the lens settings menu. My understanding is that when I put an Olympus 4/3 lens on, the camera is supposed to recognise that lens and adjust...

Re: "Set Home" Function doesn't seem to work.

Ah, I'm starting to figure it out. I'm using one of the function buttons to activate manual focus. If I'm in manual focus that has been activated from the function button, pressing the function...

"Set Home" Function doesn't seem to work.

I'm trying to get the "set home" function to work. In menu A2/Set Home I have it checked for CA-F - single area - centered. I have tried assigning "Home" to various buttons under the "B" menu but it...

Re: Highlight Clipping only when autofocusing??

When the camera is in autofocus the histogram remains on the screen but is unaffected. *chr

Re: The Olympus E-M1 MkII Menu System Simplified

Thanks for posting that Tom. Recently bought the camera myself and something like this is much needed!
Just downloaded the kindle version.

Re: No Manual Focus Assist with the 17mm 1.8???

I'm making much more of a fuss than the problem warrants. It's just that it took me a bit by surprise when I put the lens on. I have the 12-100 and the clutch works great on that. I just thought and...

Re: No Manual Focus Assist with the 17mm 1.8???

I posted this last night but it seems to have disappeared??? (maybe I only pressed "preview post" and not "submit reply".)
Anyway here it is again:

Re: No Manual Focus Assist with the 17mm 1.8???

There are many short comings in AF. Ok this doesn't necessarily apply to this lens but having done a great deal of portrait photography, if you use AF, time and time again the AF will focus on the...

Re: No Manual Focus Assist with the 17mm 1.8???

AF is so good, but the problem is that you are still relying on the camera to choose precisely what it is that you want to focus on. To me it's just annoying most of the time. Kind of like messing...

Re: No Manual Focus Assist with the 17mm 1.8???

Don't worry about it, I didn't take any offence. I'm just venting my frustration. I chose that as a light weight walk around over the Panasonic for that feature alone and I'm just astonished it...

Re: No Manual Focus Assist with the 17mm 1.8???

You miss the point. I manual focus most of the time, to me you can hit focus on exactly what you want much quicker than faffing around with moving focus points in AF etc. It's not difficult to...

Re: No Manual Focus Assist with the 17mm 1.8???

Your answer in that thread doesn't hold any water. Certainly on my copy if I turn the ring to infinity the infinity mark goes past the marker nearly 4mm (which is a lot on a lens that size) so...

Re: No Manual Focus Assist with the 17mm 1.8???

I'm absolutely astonished! This feature is one of the selling points of this lens. Nowhere did I read in any review that if you employ this method of switching to manual focus you will completely...

No Manual Focus Assist with the 17mm 1.8???

I purchased a 17mm 1.8 this afternoon and I'm surprised to find that when I pull the focus ring back, the camera goes into MF I have peaking but there is no magnification for MF assist. I checked the...

Re: Highlight Clipping only when autofocusing??

I'm not sure it is an aperture issue as it happens to the same degree whether the lens is stopped down or not. You're suggestion of removing the histogram made me think about what happens on other...

Thanks, got it. With such a long menu I wonder why they feel they need to duplicate items?

Re: Highlight Clipping only when autofocusing??

Live boost is off in both cases.

I've done some more experimenting this morning and my conclusion is that the histogram is accurate BEFORE the camera goes into auto focus and not after. This in...

Re: Highlight Clipping only when autofocusing??

I'd call it more than "a bug". It means the live histogram is worthless. For me I shoot in manual and rely totally on the live histogram to give me an accurate picture of the the scene. If what you...

Ok another question (forgive me, I haven't had the camera long).
I'm using the EVF in style 2 in manual setting. I have it showing me the histogram and clipped areas in orange. When I am in manual...
