You can mix Panasonic with Olympus bodies without troubles
In reply to dcassat, Aug 9, 2012

I'm using the 25mm F1.4 Panasonic on both the G3and E-P3 without any troubles; the only thing worth noting is that famous rattlesnake you are hearing on the Olympus cameras when pointing your lens from highlights to shadows.

I'm happily mixing lenses between Panasonic and Olympus bodies without any issues.

The only lens giving problems is a lemon 100-300mm which isn't able to focus properly at infinite at length longer than 225-250mm, whether on th G3 or the E-P3. In that configuration, the E-P3 works better than the G3, because it is correctly reporting that acquiring focus is impossible, while the G3 says it is OK when it isn't.

You can mix Panasonic with Olympus bodies without troubles, save for one known issue, the 20mm on the E-M5 ; it causes some banding, but only at ISO higher than 1600. The problem has been acknowledged by Olympus who said that they are looking for a solution with Panasonic. Not sure whether the 1.2 firmware solved it.
