When I first got my E-M5 II Lightroom did not support it. So I did all my pictures in Jpeg and processed them that way. I also took Jpeg/Raw for pictures I plan to process later when Lightroom supported the E-M5 II. I know that sucks but what can you do.

any one who uses a mac what do u use to open the em1m2 files,especially the huge full res shots' down loaded the olympus software and its crap,very slow and uses huge resources and won't let u convert them very easily,i have light room and capture one and both won't open the files, any suggestions

You can download the free Adobe DNG Converter which will convert your E-M1ii RAW files to DNG. Then you can import the DNG into lightroom. That is what I am doing with my older version of Lightroom until I decide to upgrade.

i did down load this,thanx,i googled it and this came up, it won't convert the high res files though. the high res files come in 2 parts it looks like, i can't beleive olympus doesn't have decent software available for their products. i downloaded olympus viewer what a piece of crap,super slow and u can't export them to usable formats. slowest software i have used.

Is the electronic shutter Totally silent on the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II ?

I'm thinking it would be great for Owls My 1dx mkII and even my 5dsr just sends them turning away as soon as I take the first shot and this is really annoying when you have setup camo and may be half in a ditch for a couple of hours only to get a short burst as the bird fly's towards you .

Thanks for that info, I think this with a 300f4 pro will be my next setup hopefully in a month or so for when the owls start hunting more to feed there young.

The Panasonic 100-400 is very good. The zoom ring is a bit stiff but not an issue to me as I don't attempt to zoom while following an object.

Took the plunge today at the NEC Birmingham and bought the E-M1 Mark II. Olympus we're really helpful with the many questions I had. I've only had a quick play but I am really impressed. I was an Olympus man for many years but left shortly before/during the demise of the E-series. Pleased to see the build quality is as good as it always was.

I had bought the Canon m5 for days out/holidays but didn't get on with it and the Om1 is just what I wanted!

Will take a while to get used to being able to take 1 second exposures handheld though!!!

yup its a weird feeling haha, with a dual sync lens like the 12-100 some guys are pulling off 4 or 5 second hand held, i have done 2 second sharp shots, thats about my limit, i am very happy with that for quick night shots without carrying a tripod,

Anyone tried a Metabones I do have some very nice long lenses 400f4 mkII do and 600f4 mkII and wonder if these would work well with the adaptor

its not about the weight but more getting a silent shutter with a long lens for birds as it would be better to spend £600 on the adaptor than £2000 on the 300 f4 pro .
Rob.

Edit
I decided to get the camera E-M1 Mark II and the Metabones and see how it works with all my lenses and if it's not up to what I want I will then buy the 300 f4 pro.

from what iv read and seen on the tube this may well be a great birding camera, to be able to shoot with a silent shutter really made my mind up .

I had my first try with the camera and 300f4 pro not the best light but camera worked quite well the silent shutter is amazing after a few shot's the owl landed 10ft away from me and I was taking shots as it approached unfortunately I did not expect it to land near me and just could not get it in the vf .
It flew off when I moved .

Early days yet but I am quite pleased with the camera and the 300f4 pro but I do need to find the settings that work for me, focus is super fast but I do need to work on the "lose / tight " along with single point or 5 this is how I use my Canon .
The main different seems to be the Canon only uses the surrounding points If the centre one cant pick the target up.

The Olympus seems to jump to any of the 5 regardless .

I have just ordered the 1.4 tc as getting close is still a problem these are quite well cropped .
