  1. As with most things, there is de jure and de facto especially in art. For clarity's sake, I think your definitions of macro and super macro are acceptable.
  2. Yep, I use the Olympus 60 mm macro in the 12-50 port. Works fine. (Oly EM5 Mark I).
  3. I am using the EM-5 Mark I in the Nauticam housing so, I have the all the ports and lens (Pany 7-14 mm, Oly 12-50 mm, Pany 60 mm macro) I want for underwater. The pany 100-300 mm (200-600 FF) is sweet for wild life shots here in Colorado. Soooo much lighter and smaller than my Nikon 200 and 80-200 mm rig. Regards, Huck
  4. Yeah, me too. I will be looking at the new Oly M1 mark ii.
  5. Yeah, I have certainly had my misadventures with cameras due to Stupid User Errors (SUE): Nikonos IVa, Nikon F3, F4, and N90s, but fortunately not my Nikon DSLRs. I was either able to fix them on the spot or locally repaired at reasonable cost. Olympus could take a lesson in durability. That said, I really like this Olympus camera. The size and light weight of the camera and lenses are great for hiking in the mountains and vacation travel. In 35mm terms, I have 14 to 600 mm range of lenses at a reasonable cost. The camera has paid for itself with some commercial work. OBTW, SUE is not my beloved Sue, wife, dive buddy, and u/w model. Regards, Huck
  6. Glasseye Snapper resolved my problem. Thanks Bart. Huck
  7. I think I recall someone else had this problem, but I can't find it in search. The mode knob on my Oly EM-5 Mark I fell off and is lost. My Oly dealer can't fix this and said I had to use Olympus Repair. Olympus will not ship me the part (I could replace it myself) and the service department quoted a ridiculous price for replacing. Does anyone have a source for this part? TIA, Huck
  8. I use the Panasonic 60 mm lens in the 12 to 50 port as well as the 12-50 Olympus lens. I find it's a good combination. I use the Panasonic 60 mm lens in the 12 to 50 port as well as the 12-50 Olympus lens. I find it's a good combination.
  9. Personally, I would not upgrade to the newer M5 for slightly better IS in u/w w/a. Has movement been a problem in the past? If, so, work on your holding & breathing techniques. Best of luck, Bob
  10. I use the 12-50 in a flat port on a M5 in a Nauticam housing. Also, with a flip diopter. I am pleased with the results. What level of quality do you really need? Bob
  11. I erase files on my SD cards by formatting in the camera, but I have an article that says there is a formatting program from "The SD Association". I don't format the cards using the computer. Have you heard of this? How do you erase/format your SD cards? https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/ How come I can't cut & paste to this edit? What happen to the insert link option? Bob
  12. I was having the same problem shooting my niece's basketball game. Use single focus. Was the "out of focus" really motion blur? I would crank the shutter speed up to at least 1/250 and bump the ISO if needed.
  13. Please do update the settings post. TIA, Bob
  14. Really nice Phil. Are you using MF? Bob
  15. Hi Phil, What is that optical thing on the M5 back? Bob
  16. This has been discussed before. Most of us post in this, the dslr form. Adam hasn't or doesn't want to set up a separate group. Now that there are various formats of mirror-less cameras that can use the dslr lenses, may be it is better to leave it here. Bob
  17. Try focusing in the LCD with live view. Your sensor may not be aligned properly. Have a qualified Nikon tech. check this out. There have been some sensor alignment problems with the D800. Bob
  18. Using the EVF instead of the screen will save battery power. Bob
  19. Here's a little blurb from 43 Rumors: Mr. Yukihiko of Olympus Imaging Development Division has been interviewed by DC.watch (google translation here). I highlighted the key info in the hope google translation tool didn’t fool me as it happens sometimes: 1) Worldwide DSLR+Mirrorless Camera Sales went down by 15%. But Mirrorless alone is till on expansion (Sales are growing for both lens and cameras). 2) The PEN series is not selling as expected in USA and Europe, but the E-M5 sold very well in Europe. (PEN and OMD are selling well in Asian countries). 3) The manager is confident that the E-M1 will sell better in EU and US than previous MFT cameras. 4) Future focus is on premium products (New OMD camera and lenses, and so on). Note, there was a lot of talk about OMD and absolute zero talk about PEN. Probably Olympus marketing is betting on OMD cameras (and less on PEN’s) to increase their sales in 2014. Bob
  20. I don't have the 60 port for comparison. You may what to check the Nauticam site. I suspect not much. Bob
  21. Not exactly what you asked, but you can put the Oly 12-50 & the Oly 60 macro in the Nauticam 12-50 port. That's what I use. The 60 is slightly shorter than the 12-50, so you use a little lens to subject distance at closest focus. Bob
  22. I am using the 12-50 & the 60mm in the 12-50 port with the M5. As Coroander stated, you can either auto or manual focus these lenses. The macro zoom to 43 mm for the 12-50 is particularly nice. I have the Nauticam flipholder for 70 mm diopters with an Inon +6. Bob
  23. I like the hand strap on the right side of my Nauti OM D5 rig. I use the handles as strobe mounts. Bob
