Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Well I've only had time for a wee play with it buy very impressed so far, although I think I will be buying the 9-18mm shortly as I want a bit wider angle!

Re: Possible Olympus Convert

Well the menu system I am finding a little difficult to navigate compared to the Sony as there are fewer words, all icons!
Also the LCD is not as hi-res but all things I knew.
Cracking size although with the 14-54 attached it is very front heavy, maybe look into getting a battery grip.
May well sell the pancake lens its good but I'm not sure I will use it all that much, think a 9-18 would serve me better.
I also have the 14-45 kit lens for when I really want a smaller lens to take anyway,although I will give the pancake a try over the next few weeks, it much smaller than the old 50mm I had on my Sony.
