Does anyone else shoot Olympus?
I have an e-510 and for some reason the picture always comes out with more room on the right and bottom side than the viewfinder shows. It's not too big of a deal because it gives me a little extra space that I can crop out of if necessary, but it's just a bit strange.
Optical viewfinders sometimes don't cover the entire frame that the sensor sees. That camera has a 95% coverage viewfinder, so about 5% of your photo isn't visible in the finder. I guess it's also not perfectly centered which is why you get extra on just the right and bottom instead of a little extra all the way around.
E-M1 with the 4/3 to m4/3 adapter. 4/3 had some great lenses but the cameras really needed some more time to mature, the m4/3 cameras really deliver what 4/3 was supposed to be in the first place.
The reason for the em-1 is because it has on sensor phase detect auto focus (same type as an SLR) and can autofocus the 4/3 lenses as good if not better than the 4/3 bodies. It is currently there only m4/3 body to have this feature.
Well, E-600/620 were pretty nice, and if you have pro FT lenses and want a rugged body to match, E-3 can be found for very cheap.
But remember that the last new 4/3 camera was released 7 years ago, so don't expect too much.
