Re: Best 4/3 glass for M4/3?

My 12-60mm & 8mm fisheye both work pretty well on my E-PM1. They aren't as quick as my m43 lenses, but they are fine for most situations. The only real issue is their physical size and weight compared to native m43 lenses.

My 50mm f2 & 50-200mm (non-SWD) really seem to struggle to autofocus (especially the 50-200mm), sometimes indicating focus lock when they aren't actually quite in focus. I tend to stick with my E-3 when I'm in situations where I want to use those lenses, they are both fantastic lenses optically. I did try my (seldom used now) 70-300mm on the PEN once, it was much better at focusing than the 50-200mm.

Enjoy your E-M5!
