Quick Question regarding 24mm legacy lens on M4/3
Feb 16, 2010

So a 24mm lens will have an effective focal length of 48mm on an M4/3 camera making it a nice(?) normal lens but I'm concerned about distortion. Normal lenses don't have a lot of distortion but since you're using a 24mm (which is wide angle), would this lenses retain their distortion on M4/3 cameras?

I'm planning probably planning to buy a Hexanon 24mm F2.8 but if it will have unacceptable distortion for a normal lens then I'll just wait for an Pana/Oly 25mm for M4/3 (and I know, it's slow for a normal lens but I'll be fine ;))
