    Amazingly cheap for a very capable and good quality camera

      Unfortunately all these olympus, including the em1, have a fault. The shutter stays closed. When this begins to happen is random; but once it does it is $400 to replace the shutter assembly - unless you're still in warranty. Here's an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4KdcoxoS_k

        Any mechanical item can fail, not just Olympus.
        Not sure where you got the $400 price from because every comment I have seen about it is less than half that amount.

    Friends, how well do the kit lenses on these sell? I've already got a m.zuiko pro 12-40 (got for bmpcck 4k) and wouldn't mind getting a dedicated stills camera.

    • +1 vote

      Plenty of them on eBay. I'm not sure on the EZ model, but the kit normal zoom usually goes a little under $100…maybe down as low as $60. Sometimes slightly more than $100. Plenty of people asking more than that, but I'm not sure if they're actually selling them.

      They can be handy for when you sell bodies down the track - you can include a token kit lens with it.

      Love these cameras though. Made the mistake of getting the 12-40 pro myself, and now I have such bad GAS for the other pro lenses. Kind of detracts from the portability a little though (but still smaller than my APS-C/FF equivalents).

    • +2 votes

      I'd recommend keeping the 14-42 EZ. While I do enjoy the 12-40 Pro, sometimes I want the camera to be as light and portable as possible so I still use the 14-42.

  •  

    Whilst it's been superseded by the MKIII, apparently the MKIII can't do wireless flash whilst this can. There's also apparently other features present in this that's not in the MKIII, so I'm a little gutted I bought into the hype and bought the MKIII instead of the MKII.

    For those of you looking to do close ups, they also sell the STF-8 twin flash for the macro lens, which has been very useful for me at work.

      Definitely, especially if you want interchangeable lenses set up.

        I would be mainly interested in doing night time city shots and shots of landscapes, should i buy another lens with it?

        • +1 vote

          Recommend you experiment with the kit lens first, experiment the techniques, then you will know how much wider/faster lens that would suit your style. Night time you will want a faster prime. Landscape a wide angle prime.

        •  

          The current lens won't be that good for night time photos. With m43 you will need to invest in a lens that doesn't have zoom and even then you'll struggle unless it's well lit. Different story if you've happy to carry around a tripod but then you'll want your subject to be pretty still.

          I've got the em1 m1.

      It's a great beginner camera, especially if small size is important.

      Oztoms advice is spot on. You can achieve a lot with a kit lens, especially with a tripod (say for landscapes), and some knowledge. If you're starting out and learning, don't just jump on the bandwagon of wanting expensive big 2.8 lenses, you'll eventually find out what you're missing in a kit lens, and can then buy to suit. Typical examples include; wide prime with fast aperture for astro shots and landscapes generally; small prime lens for low light performance, image quality and low profile (20mm Pany for e.g.), good for dinner out, street shots etc; all in one mega zoom for convenience across a range of shooting scenarios, but not amazing at anything, good for travel; 2.8 Pro zoom for convenience and quality.

    Had this camera since early 2016, great for beginners (like me) but also got enough features and quality for more enthusiast types

    What's something good for baby photos? And basically shots of kids/people. Suspect it's a lens choice, but keen to hear from people who know more about cameras.

    • +1 vote

      I'd say the op's choice of Olympus 45mm f1.8 lens would suit (fast primes between 25-45mm). If moving subjects then fast zoom lenses would be best (f2.8).

      • +1 vote

        As above. 25mm is a good all round prime focal length. Pany 25 1.7 is the best priced.

      •  

        +1 …I have the 45mm 1.8 …it's inexpensive and does nice portraits completely above expectations for the price. It would be my choice for baby photos, or the 75mm f1.8 for a little more (unless I had the Pro lens at either of those focal lengths). Also a more 'normal' prime of 20-30mm if you're commonly wanting to photograph small groups (I have the Panasonic 25mm mentioned, and it is quite good at the dirt cheap price).

        All of the primes are quite good if you want better pictures than the kit zooms afford, but don't want to spend too much.

  •  

    Which is a better deal for a newbie? The twin lens kit or the 14-42mm plus Olympus 45mm f1.8 lens. I am off to New Zealand for holidays so need both low light and outdoor shots. Moving objects not so much. Please advise asap.

    •  

      As you said low light, I would pick the 45 1.8 combo. It's the combo I would pick too. It will excel with low light and shallow depth of field (portraits), but the other combo will of course give you more reach. So if a longer zoom is important, pick the twin lens kit combo.
      Haha as I'm writing this I remembered I am selling the pany 45 1.7 on ebay right now, so you could buy that! lol.

      •  

        Thanks bud. So if the twin lens kit a better general purpose option?

        •  

          The twin lens kit will cover all bases. There is a reason why camera companies sell twin lenses kits like hot cakes. People going on holidays (unless it is a specific shooting trips) would take a prime and a zoom lenses that cover most situations.

          •  

            @OzTom: Cheers will order the twin lens one then thanks for your help.

            •  

              @go2force: Having said that 45mm in MFT would be too much too much (90mm in the 35mm standard) if you are walking around with a single lens only, unless you take a lot of photos from a distance or outdoors. If you want the lightest set up, 17 to 25 mm primes would cover most street and indoor shootings. They are in the normal focal length range (equivalent to 35 to 50 mm in full frame term). See this article for why 35mm (17-18mm in MFT format) is versatile https://www.photographytalk.com/beginner-photography-tips/5-....

              •  

                @OzTom: Too technical for me mate. I am after an all purpose with good low light. If you think twin lens would tick off these boxes, I will go ahead with it. Thanks again

                •  

                  @go2force: Hey, been following this thread. Also new to photography and like you I'm also travelling NZ and would like to get into photography more seriously as well as invest in a lens that would be good for low light and provide a good bokeh effect and was looking at hopping on this deal. Didn't OzTom suggest that for low light the 45 1.8 combo would be better?

                  •  

                    @spacebetweeen: Most of the cheaper primes beat the kit zooms in low light quite substantially…they're mostly around 1.7 - 1.8, so you're usually getting 2 or 3 stops more than the kit zooms (this is the difference between being able to take a shot at 1/60th second vs 1/15th or maybe 1/8th second in some situations…it means the difference between needing a tripod or not).

                    Also…you will have more bokeh for sure…but lets not get on the bokeh wagon. If you're doing landscape/story photography such as with travel, you often want a deep depth of field anyway.

                    •  

                      @Banj0: Ok cool so you reckon to start off, get the MKII deal with the f1.8 45mm to start off? If I get those two I can fit it in to my budget.

                      • +1 vote

                        @spacebetweeen: It's a nice deal. The 45mm…well…I like it, but…look, it really depends on what you will like to photograph with your camera. I think you have to be prepared to experiment, and make sure you get your lenses cheap. If you find you're not using something, turn it back over on eBay, and get something else.

                        That said, I visited NZ with my family a couple of years back. I drove everybody nuts taking photos everywhere. I had my Pentax K5ii and a bunch of primes. I almost exclusively used my 15mm and 35mm (macro). In full format terms, these are standard 24mm and 50mm roughly (and 50mm is the old 'normal' lens). In four-thirds speak, this would be 12mm and 25mm. I like taking landscape shots, my family doing things, and small things (hence the 35mm macro gets much love, as it served duty as a normal lens and also for tiny things).

                        Had I my E-M5ii and 12-40 Oly Pro at the time, that combo would likely never have left my neck/shoulder.

                        Sorry…that probably doesn't help you much. Based on what I like myself, and may not suit you, the 12-40 Olympus Pro would be my first choice, followed by a 12mm/20mm (or 25mm) prime combo, followed by the kit normal zoom with a faster lens (but probably 17mm or 20mm or 25mm).

                        The 45mm is a lovely lens though…but I can't see myself using it much on a NZ trip, just a little. Would have been great for when my first child was born though.

                        Clear as mud…right?

                        BTW…changing lenses all the time sucks. You should force yourself to try and use one or another for a day or half day. It's great for developing your eye anyway.

                        BTW2…all of these options can take better shots than a phone camera…though you may only realise it is so when you turn something into a large print.

                        Edit: Sorry for the huge reply…three other options on top of the body/kit:

                        Panasonic 25mm f1.7 - totally cheap, totally normal, good bang for buck at $206.28 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Panasonic-Lumix-G-25mm-F1-7-Camera-Lens-AUST-STK/282875224659?epid=2142147822&hash=item41dcad6253:g:rkUAAOSwTUpdWgXI:sc:AU_ExpressDelivery!2617!AU!-1

                        Panasonic 20mm f1.7 - flatter and smaller than the 25mm, and handily wider focal length…buuut $368.85 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Panasonic-20mm-f1-7-II-Pancake-Lens-Black-HH020AEK-with-GEN-PANASONIC-WARR/123007723435?hash=item1ca3d4e7ab:g:EKsAAOSw2kpdUmIX:sc:AU_StandardDelivery!2617!AU!-1

                        Olympus 17mm f2.8 - that 35mm equivalent…I prefer this focal length for all around…woah…$388.85!!! https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Olympus-17mm-f1-8-M-Zuiko-Wide-Lens-Silver-OLYMPUS-WARR/123664818327?epid=168306605&hash=item1ccaff6097:g:fTkAAOSwnhldS4oD:sc:AU_StandardDelivery!2617!AU!-1

                        Look around for any of these 2nd hand, and you will pay less. 25mm is the pick for fastish glass on a budget.

      I would go with 25mm or wider instead of 45mm for holidays

        Oh okay…any particular recommendation? I am sorta after all purpose lens combination? Low light would be a bonus. Thanks

        • +1 vote

          Take your kit zoom for general daylight use, and maybe grab an f1.7/1.8 prime between 17 and 25mm for the low light stuff (restaurant, club, whatever).

          Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 pro if you can splash $500 on a used copy. You'll likely not need to take it off…only 1.5 stops slower than the 'fast' primes.

          •  

            @Banj0: I Agree, I accidentally grabbed my 45mm when packing for my last trip instead of the 25mm and regretted it on the first day.
            great for portraits but too long for street photography.

        • +2 votes

          I'd recommend the 20mm 1.7 Panasonic or Olympus 17mm 1.8. Both are great all round lenses that are small, good for street photography and decent when light isn't great.

        •  

          All purpose? Get the kit with 14-42mm lenses. When you outgrow the kit lenses, get this lens - best balance between price, capability and versatility: Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO Lens.

    Sold out as I finally decided to pull the trigger! :D :D

      Looks like sold out for the single lens kit. Twin lens kits still seem to be in stock.

      If I'm gonna buy one… everyone has to… muahahha

    Just wondering - is one of these (or a mkiii) worth the upgrade from the original EM-10 with the kit lens?

      If you already have Mk i, go straight to the Mk iii to get 4K videos, if you come across a good deal.
