    Another ISO100 jpeg shot, change to B & W, there's 2 spots I cleaned, possibly dust on lens. No sharpness tweak. Olympus 17mm F1.8, NF set to low, F5.6, 60s, 3 stop ND filter.

    Found some time to test out built in timelapse and video function in E-P5. You can set hr, minute, sec. I did 1 or 2 sec. However limitation of 99 frames which is imo very little. the video created in camera is only 10sec. Though there's a hidden function "anti-shock" which can be used to achieve intervalometer function but the in camera video function can't be done. you can choose whether to create the video so the 99 frames are also captured. It takes about 1minute to make the video.
    Conclusion: Gimmicky, limiting frames, awfully fun. 1st time family seen this feature in a camera and they found it entertaining.

    A few Safari animals, taken while on the tram through a thin (not so clean) glass. The safari here is interesting as some animals can come really close.

    Lion, Lioness. Olympus 75mm/1.8 @ F2.0, ISO200, 1/320s. Was taking while tram was moving, thought it's gone shot, from the quick preview on EP5 it shows the shot taken was blur due to unstable motion, but actual turns out well, the 5 axis is really good.


    Cheetah, Olympus 75mm/1.8 @ F2.0, ISO250, 1/160s


    Girraffe, Olympus 75mm/1.8 @ F2.0, ISO200, 1/1000s


    Orang Utan, Olympus 75mm/1.8 @ F2.0, ISO200, 1/500s


    Tiger, Olympus 75mm/1.8 @ F1.8, ISO800, 1/1600s. I accidentally used ISO800.

    Can you please check for E-P5:

    • If Lumix 40 to 150 Mega-OIS lens is fixed (it has no manual switch to turn the OIS on/off) on to E-P5, once the Olympus body IBIS is turned off, will the Lumix 40 to 150 automatically turn on and use the lens OIS?
    Apparently some lenses have no switch but if you use a Panasonic Lumix camera body, there is a way to turn the OIS on or off within the camera menu. So this may be a case of protectionism although Olympus and Panasonic share the MFT stage.

    • If above (for Lumix Mega OIS lens) is not true, then will it be true for the Lumix Power-OIS lens without manual OIS switch?


    • Whether the E-P5 has focus peaking when used with manual legacy lens on adapter; and if so, does it give outline of the object within the picture frame, that you wish to be in focus. Can you change the colour tone of that focus peak indication from white to yellow or red?

    Thanks.

    Hi Ricohflex,

    <EDIT after converse with Olympus product manager>
    There's a new setting from E-PL5 and also E-P5,
    Lens I.S. Priority If [On] is selected, priority is given to the lens function operation when using a lens with an image stabilization function. If you turn off "Lens I.S. Priority" setting , you can still choose 5 axis IBIS on/off from it super control panel. I shall test Panasonic 12-35 that has a OIS switch and see if software will override the switch position.



    E-P5 post #23 & #24 should answer your question on focus peak which is Yes, Yes, No (Black or white)

    Thanks wonglp, for finding out.

    A friend bought the Lumix MFT 40-150 and realised he cannot use the lens OIS on his E-P3.

    Perhaps in future Olympus can issue a firmware update for the E-P3 where the menu option to turn lens OIS is added?

    I presume the E-P5 feature of lens OIS control and Focus Peaking will be included in the new OMD2 (or EM6).

    Maybe they will introduce OMD2 some time before the 1 November - start of the peak holiday gift buying season leading to Christmas.

    Some art filters in Bali, E-P5 didn't have any new art filters from before, personally, would like to see "bleach bypass"

    Grainy B& W, with 17mm/1.8 ISO 200. F5, 1/500s


    Keyline, ISO200 F7.1, 1/1000s. There's minimal shutter lag, this shot was framed with motorcycle on left and the minimal lag allows the composition to be captured.


    Dramatic Tone, ISO200, F6.3, 1/1000s


    If shoot in RAW format, one can choose the art filter to be used on the pictures with Olympus software.

    The AF spot can be chosen to be even smaller than the standard 7 x 5 AF squares. (Apologise for the hasty handphone shot)



    What this means is an accurate AF for tricky situations like the below using tele primes with shallow depth of field:
    With Olympus 75/1.8 lens, focus on red beads.


    Right eye focus. With Olympus 75/1.8.


    Pigeon eye focus. With Olympus 75/1.8

    There's a new 5 axis IBIS (in body image stabilizer) mode known as S-IS-auto, landscape panning IS. The camera detects the panning direction and applies the appropriate image stabilization. admittedly, I'm not good at panning shots, with this mode, I was able to get some panning shots right, at least it seemed so after turning it on, hit rate was better.
