read what LL has to say about regular 4/3 lenses on the e-m5

I use the Olympus 14-54 f/2.8-3.5 II, which focuses at least as fast as the slowest m4/3 native lenses. It's a decent, eminently usable performer for autofocus, and has no faults for image quality at its price.

I also use the Olympus 11-22 f/2.8-3.5, which is slow to focus but quite accurate. Some easily corrected CA, great resolution, admirably low distortion. Interestingly it focuses faster on the E-PL1 than it does on the GH2.

I used the Olympus 40-150 f/4.0-5.6, but after getting frustrated with its mechanics I upgraded to the Micro Four Thirds version, which has optics of equally very high quality in a much better constructed shell.

I used the Sigma 18-50 f/2.8, which, while a great lens optically, was a very poor AF performer on Micro Four Thirds (it would not focus accurately at the long end), and I sold it to get the 14-54.
