I hope to upgrade from my old Olympus E-520 to the new PEN E-PL5 this Christmas.

Would it be possible to use my 25mm 1:2.8 Pancake lens with it or do four thirds and micro four thirds not work together?

Thanks.

Harry.

You can make it work with an adapter.  The AF speed won't be as good on an m43 camera as it was on a 43 camera. The adapter will add some length to the whole assembly so it won't be as "pancakey". If you aren't bothered by that it should be fine.
