Do Olympus make a case.....

for the OM-D E-M5 Mk1 when fitted with the HLD-6 Grip, or can anyone suggest a good quality after-market option which will (a) protect the camera from damage, and (b) allow access to the HLD-6...

Re: Having ago old school-film

A VERY nice ensemble there Derek, hope the seals are all good before you enthusiastically put rolls of expensive film through them; I think I still have the film mentality too; I try to make every...

Re: Old toy with new toy.

I've recently acquired a really nice OM-2n in black which is close to mint; I didn't get the manual so I downloaded it in PDF form and for very little money had it properly printed and bound into a...

Re: OM 50mm/f1.8 and an MF-2 (Black)

Hi Steve,

which 50mm f/1.8 lens are you selling; is it a 'silvernose', 'Japan' or 'Made in Japan' or some other variant?

I could be interested in this if it's a MiJ in 100% condition, and at...

What lens type/serials do you have on your later body/bodies David; I'm just looking to get an idea of serial numbers and lens types.................

Re: OM eye candy

Thanks David, I thought that was likely to be the case and I'll look out for a lens more contemporaneous to the body; either a f/1.8 or even better the f/1.4.
I will hang on to the silvernose for...

Re: OM eye candy

You're right there Nigel; I've seen 4 iterations of the Recordata backs; the two earlier ones have a series of manual dials to set and a synch cable and the two later ones have a digital panel -...

Re: OM eye candy

You must use that OM mm500!

Re: OM eye candy

Thanks David;

I've had a close look at OM-1/2/n backs and compared them with OM10/20 backs and the hinge area looks different insofar as the single-digit backs have the spring-loaded hinge pin...

Re: OM eye candy

Well, the dirty deed is done; a very tidy OM-2n with Zuiko 50mm f/1.8 is on it's way towards my address as we speak; Also an original Ever-Ready case, a very tidy original Oly strap with the rubber...

Re: OM eye candy

Re: Any opinions on the Meike MK320 for E-M5?

@ Ross, and Alfbranch

Cheers for the options guys, the 58 and 64 models are a bit big for my needs; one of my reasons for going from EOS DSLRs to the Oly is the compactness so I'm keeping it...

Hi Mike,

Thanks,

Re: Any opinions on the Meike MK320 for E-M5?

Interesting review there, thanks Ross;

The price is a consideration at half that of the Nissin i40, so now being aware of the GN thing I still think I'd be inclined to get one of these as an...

Re: Booting W10 into touch...

There is a way to disable updates with a registry key, but follow the instructions carefully as the registry is a dangerous place for the unwary.....

Re: Focus peaking with legacy glass?

I'm toying with the idea of a cheap 50mm f/1.8 Zuiko to play with; with OM2s and 10s going for not much more than a pack of cigarettes in the UK it's very tempting, but then I'd need an OM2 to keep...

Any opinions on the Meike MK320 for E-M5?

Re: OM eye candy

Must admit to a hankering for a black OM-2n or SP but fear it simply would be a case queen along with my owned-since-new Praktica BC-1, Am a very happy OM-D E-M5 owner!!
