How well do 4/3 lenses work on micro 4/3 cameras?
5 months ago

I don't have any experience with (μ)4/3 systems, I'm asking this on behalf of a non-English speaker.

How well do 4/3 lenses work on micro 4/3 cameras? Do they auto-focus at all? I'm a bit confused by the fact that the OM-D E-M1 is advertised as being fully compatible with 4/3 lenses. Does that mean that other μ4/3 cameras aren't compatible?

So what exactly is lost when adapting a 4/3 lens to a μ4/3 camera? It's difficult to google for this because searching for "four thirds" will usually bring up "micro four thirds" results. Links to relevant pages are welcome.
