Using OM lenses
Feb 27, 2011

I've got several OM telephoto lenses. They always were manual focus so I'm under no illusions about that aspect but how does metering / exposure work on a m4/3 body (epl-2 specifically) ?

All the OM lenses have an aperture ring but the lens doesn't actually physically stop down unless attached to a camera body that engages with the spring-loaded lever on the lens throat.

Does the m4/3 OM adaptor enable this to work i.e can you stop down using the lens aperture ring or do these lenses have to be used at full aperture?

Also, how accurate s the metering on m4/3 bodies with these lenses?

Thanks all.
