Default Have Just bought OMD EM1

Hi All

Just wanted to say that after a Long time have delved into the world of Micro 4/3rds.

I got the camera yesterday and am wondering what would be the best settings to tweak re focus mainly.

My range of photography is all sorts from Landscape to street photography and various sports.

I still have my 2 nikon cameras the d610 and d7000 which I still love of course but the olympus I got for the weight factor.

The first lens I got for the OMD EM1 is the 12-50 mm which I thought would be ok for the time being.
Would love the Pro Masters of course but budget limited lol...

Thankyou in Advance for any tips or recemondations.

PS I would have Loved the M2 but cost expensive.

Almost missed this thread because I didn't recognize the "D-1" in the title. Congrats on your purchase of the EM-1. While I don't own the EM-1, there are a lot of knowledgeable folks on the forum and they should be able to provide some good advice.

I'll second Wrotniak's site. His four-thirds section was as good as it got for the DSLR system, and he's updating the Micro Four-Third's section now in earnest after taking some time off from the site. His write-ups on both the E-M1 and E-M1 Mark II are excellent.

Hi All

Thankyou for response.
I will look into that website.

My first impressions is camera very impresive. I am still looking at various settings and finding my way around.
I am shooting test images in raw and after taking picture looking back at lcd and am very happy with results.
Havent transfered anything onto computer yet but I am certain I wont be dissapointed.
The only thing that is a little confusing is when Im testing in Continuous tracking and high speed sequential. There seems a little lag or something or maybe if shooting in High speed need to use S-Auto focus.

Thankyou all again for the info as its very much appreciated.

Vedran

As many Olympus models as I have owned, and the menus are pretty much all the same, those first couple of hours are just a grind as I never remember where everything is, and there's always something new.

Once you get several parameters "setup", you are good to go, but just know that initial setup is always a bear, even for someone who's done it over a half-dozen or more new Olympus models over time. The flexibility to set the camera up pretty much any way you want is incredible, but often it is equally incredibly complicated, simply finding it all to set up.
