Default Played with the OMD - E5

Was screwing around with the camera after we opened gifts. I just wanted to see if that tiny flash worked that came with the camera. Maggie was on my wife's lap so I snapped a shot using the 4/3 35mm macro. Sure a lot of focus hunt before it locks on and then sometimes does not lock on. I guess it's not that great with 4/3 lenses in low light. Don't have a M43 lens to see if the problem is the same. I'll have to check this out outdoors in better light.

I actually really like using the touch screen for those types of shots with pets from straight on. Your focus automatically went to the dog's nose and mouth, but you could use the touch screen to take the photo (touch the dogs eyes on screen) and focus will be on the eyes for a slightly better result.

Did not realize this Drew. Haven't gotten that far in the manual. I believe I'm only on page 16 of a 133 page manual.

Thank you Steve. Once I get the camera figured out I'll be taking some shots and posting. I'll be using my 4/3rds lenses for a while until I can make a decision of which M43 lens I'll be getting.
