How will this affect your decision to consider E-M1?
11 months ago

We obviously haven't seen the official release of the E-M1 yet, but if the design hasn't changed from the E-M5 will these pieces of information directly from Olympus have any affect on FT lens users?

When using Four Thirds lenses and the MMF-3, MMF-2** or MMF-1** adapter with an OM-D Series camera, please consider the following:

  • Focal length and f-stop (aperture value) does not change.
  • When you take a picture in C-AF or C-AF+TR (AF tracking) mode using a Four Thirds lens, the camera operates as in S-AF mode.
  • When using a lens that is not compatible with high-speed imager AF technology, shooting with "S-AF + MF" mode is recommended.
  • It is recommended to update the firmware of the lens to the latest version. Visit this site for more information: http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/download/software/firm/e1/
  • Attaching two or more adapters between the camera body and the lens is not recommended; therefore, please do not use the EC-14 or EC-20 teleconverter or the EX-25 extension tube with OM-D Series cameras.
