Re: Thinking of an E-P5

It is not available in iAuto Mode

In PASM Just press OK then if the control bars are on the bottom and RHS, press info to get the SCP.

I saw that in the manual, but it doesn't work. Pressing 'OK' just gets two columns which seem to be 'mini' SCPs - one along the bottom and one up the RHS. Pressing 'info' has no effect. After a second or two the display drops back to normal.

Re: Thinking of an E-P5

Got there at last!

From the m43 forum on dpreview:

"The very first thing to do with this camera (or any Pen or OM-D camera) is to turn on the optional custom menus (the gear wheels item in the menu list) by....
Menu ► Spanner Menu ► Menu Display = ON.
Next is to enable the extremely useful SCP (Super Control Panel) by....
Menu ► Custom Menu (Gear Wheels) ► D DISP/x/PC ► Control Setting ► then go though the iAUTO, P/A/S/M and ART/SCN settings to set the way things display on the LCD when the Start/OK button is pressed.
The choices for each are Live Guide, Live Control and SCP. I have only the SCP turned on for all three modes. If two or three options are turned on for any mode, then when the OK button is pressed then you may need to press the INFO button to cycle to the control screen desired."

Congratulations, you are now qualified to land a space shuttle (should they ever fly again), less complicated than all those menu settings on a digicam!

Re: Thinking of an E-P5

If you are looking for a small zoom for an E-P5, and it doesn't have to be Oly, I had a Panasonic 12-32mm lens on a GM1 (until I dropped the camera and killed it).
The lens is tiny and quite a surprise performance wise.

Re: Thinking of an E-P5

I've found another, not as good as the deal Jim got ( that was an incredibly good buy ) but a very decent price non the less. Maybe a back-up Jim ?

I wish you'd told me a few days ago - I've just bought one!

Re: Thinking of an E-P5

With the 12-32, keep in mind that that sharpest performance is always slightly stopped down from the widest aperture at any given focal length. Otherwise it’s a stunning performer. Its sibling, the 35-100, is also very nice.
