    Camera Topics Re: E-5 Body Repair

    I wound up replacing my E5 with an OM-D E-M1 and the MMF3 converter. My two SWD lenses (12-60 and 50-20) both focus very well on the M1. I think it is a good option if you have some orginal HG or SHG...

    Ken - They still do service the E-5, but were unable to repair my particular body. Not sure if it was a parts issue or just cost exceeding the value of the camera. BTW, it appears that the E-5 is the...

    E-5, 12-60 and 50-200 kit fufills most of my needs just fine. I am shopping for a smaller compact camera for climbing, but m4/3 don't fit the bill for me on that count.

    Selling it as a group severely limits your potential buyers - it is a very small group of people that would want the full kit. You also leave a lot of money on the table. If you want to sell it in a...

    Don, very interesting, not what I would have expected. I wonder if anyone has done a direct comparison between the two lenses on the OM-D series, could be very informative.

    Daniel, it most likely is the lens, the SWD may seem the same, but focuses using a completely different mechanism than the previous lens. I am sure if you find an SWD lens you will find a marked...
  11. Camera Topics Re: Do you consider the EM-1 a replacement for the E-5

    I just can't give up the optical viewfinder so the E-5 will stay! I am sure I will eventually add the M1 (or possibly one of it's descendents) but funds won't permit that anytime soon.

    No autofocus options really available for the older E system. Get the OM adapter for your E-3 and purchase an OM 50 1.8 or 1.4. Manual focus and aperture, but an inexpensive solution. Another option...

    Camera Topics Re: Film v digital metering

    If the E5 is set to matrix metering you are very likely to get different readings from the Canon. Make sure both are set to averging before doing comparisons.

    Camera Topics Re: Anyone ever buy an EX camera body from KEH?

    Yes. KEH is very conservative in their grading. I usually buy bargain grade from them. The few items that were rated EX that I did purchase were in excellent shape. Hard to tell they were used at all.

    My guess would be because they honestly don't know at this point. With all the financial issues I am sure they are looking at all options and evaluating them fairly closely as to profitability.
