    Lens Topics What 4/3 lenses do you use with your E-M1?

    When I purchased my E-M1, I had no m4/3 lenses. I ended up using the 14-54mm II lens, and selling off the other 4/3 lenses.
    I feel that this 4/3 lens meets most of my needs and feels "just right"...

    Camera Topics Re: M4/3 and 4/3--new systems for me

    I use the E-M1 with the 4/3 14-54mm II lens and it works just fine. I wouldn't recommend using the 4/3 lenses with anything but the E-M1 because of slower focus.

    Camera Topics Re: Dust Reduction

    My first digital camera was chosen (2008) because it had (1) dust reduction, (2) live-view, (3) in-body image stabilization. The "others" did not.

    Camera Topics Re: My E-520 is Going Into retirement

    I still have my E-510, but sold the E-620 when I got the E-M1. The E-M1 was my first "pro" grade camera, and what a difference!
    It feels so SOLID and hefty in comparison to the "consumer grade"...
  13. Poll: Lens Topics Re: Do you currently use 4/3 lenses on your m4/3 cameras?

    The 14-54mm II handles very well on the E-M1, especially with the Gariz leather half-case grip.
