Yeah real shame it doesn't. Would be great to have 24mm to 280mm with one lens and a converter.
Some large price reductions on Camera Price Buster - Amazon have slashed prices of the following lenses, which are all subject to Olympus cash backs as well at the moment
Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9-18mm 1:4.0-5.6 Lens - Amazon selling for £404 and Olympus will give you an additional £75 back via rebate
Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 45 mm 1:1.8 Lens - Black - Amazon selling for £169 and Olympus will give you an additional £40 back via rebate
Olympus M.ZUIKO ED 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 II Lens - Amazon selling for £314 and Olympus will give you an additional £75 back via rebate
Olympus Cashback page can be found at
That 45mm is a steal at £129..............(thats £16 less than I paid for my second hand one)
Absolutely and it is a stunning lens
I see Wex are doing some enhanced trade-in deals on the OMD E-M1-ii at the moment - has anyone traded in their M5-ii for the M1-ii ?
The most frustrating thing I find with my M5-ii is it's slow to wake up, so I'd be interested to know if M1-ii has the same problem.
I went from the m5-ii to the m1-ii and the m1 is much much faster. I switch on and its ready to go. In fact its just better at everything.
Except for the manual been about 300 pages to understand the menus that is.
I am still at the stage where I know there its in there somewhere to change something but I cant find it without going through almost every menu.
Really worth the upgrade?
Just considering the change myself this or get the 40-150 f2.8.
The price is eye watering although a few deals are starting to appear to make it more palatable.
The focusing and features on the mark II are amazing. Will it make you take better pictures? Not necessarily. I part ex my body, sold my drone and my 75mm to find the body swap.

Saw those on DPR - very impressive!
They do look stunning images.
At the moment I am just playing with photography as a side hobby to my main one, but am already finding I prefer nature photography, I have the EM5 MK2 and 12-50 kit lens, 40-150 r2 and also the Panasonic 100-400. The option is to swap bodies and go for the EM1 MK2 or concentrate on the lens side of things and get 12-40 and 40-150 f2.8 and then change the body later on - just not sure which is best way to go at mo.
If it was me.....I'd go with the lenses, your camera is more than capable enough. The 12-40 is a great lens. I'd feel cheated if I had to slap a kit lens on a em1 mk2
I've gone and ordered the 40-150 f2.8 first off, I take on board getting the glass is probably most important than the body at the moment.
Olympus 40-150 f2.8 turned up today, must say just in the hand and testing it, it just feels a quality product and am looking forward to giving it a run out.
Really wish Olympus would produce a 100-400 tele as just in the build quality it wins hands down against the Panasonic 100-400, image quality of the Panasonic lens is superb but just doesn't feel as good quality to operate as the Olympus.
I would be happy with a 100-300 pro lens which could also take the 1.4 tele.
Well the 40-150 what a lens that is, so sharp and bright - so far very impressed with it and looking forward to spending more time with it.
Balls, I left it too late to sort out a telephoto lens for my Safari trip.
Anyone fancy lending me some glass?
Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Olympus 60mm macro

That lens is on my wish list. Nice pic
So after years of using just my phone to take pictures i took the leap and bought an Olympus OM-D E-M10 MII. I have taken a few test shots just on auto but would like to get to know how to use the features of this camera.
Can anybody point me towards a blog/website/book on what different features use/what lenses should be used where/beginners photography?
That would be really useful thanks
