    Images and Observations

    I've had it two and a half day and not seen the sun.Thought I'd post a few from this morning and air a few thoughts so far.













    All at ISO 400 apart from the inside of the church which is ISO 1600 and all with IS 1 on and the 14-150mm.All shot in Raw.

    Very impressed with the viewfinder particularly the fact that you can over lay the live histogram and adjust to it before the shot is taken.Seems quite accurate and very easy to get the exposure correct.
    On the E5/3 you could do this in live view but it was so small I didn't take any notice of it.
    As I have my camera set in manual focus mode 3 and auto focus with the fn1 button I have it set to magnify on the turn of the focus ring,combined with the ability to have IS preview with a half push of the shutter button make manual focus very easy.This is really very handy for use with my 4/3 lenses.
    I like the fact you can get the SCP up in the view finder and change setting as you shoot.
    Wish I could get Myset on the FN2 or rec button though,only seem to be able to assign it to fn1 which I need for auto focus.
    Can't get Home point to work on either fn1 or rec,something I use on my E5 even though it's there.

    My 4/3 lenses all auto focus but it's a bit hit and miss and slow so prefer to manual focus,something I use quite a lot anyway.

    As you can probably tell I'm impressed with the camera and also the 14-150 which I'll use as my walk round lens.

    Ps it fits in my bag so well for walk around I'm not sure how much I'll use the grip when it turns up.
    All the best

    Very nice photos! I'm not surprised the E-M5 can do them, but the 14-150?

    seems to be quite impressive, particularly with high ISO of 1600, others are also quite good

    Not owning any M4/3 lenses I wanted something as an all-round walk about lens.I had reservation about this type of "super-zoom" but one came up second hand on the sister site for a very good price.

    So far I'm not disappointed.I think the key to this lens is to use it at f7.1 or f8.
    All the best

    Great set Andy, looks like you are getting on with the camera and the 14-150 is a great lens, I've always said that from the day I got it, far better than it should be but it can be used from wide open and still get good pics.

    Fantastic shots. Much sharper then I expected from the 14-150. You really know how to bring out the best in that lens!
