Mirrorless question of the month:
Hi, I started my photographic journey many years ago with an Olympus OM10 film camera. Eventually moving on to digital cameras with my first digital SLR being the Olympus E410 four-thirds system. I had a couple of lenses for this, the kit lens 14-42 and the 70-300 zoom 4-5.6.
I now own the Olympus OM-D EM10 MK1 with a 17mm f1.8 lens. This combination is perfect for street photography but I do also enjoy other types of photography especially wildlife. For this I do need more focal length and the obvious thing would be to purchase a new lens but money is tight and I already have lenses that could be used to get closer.
I use the 70-300 with the Olympus four-thirds adapter on my OM-D EM10 body. The problem is, it’s very slow to focus. A google search gave me the impression that some newer Olympus bodies were better able to focus this type of lens. Is this the case and would I be better off with an EM-1 I or II or are there some settings that I can make that would aid the use of this lens?
Best wishes Rob, Somerset, UK
