roman:  and what's your experiences with 4/3 lenses (especially the 50mm) with the micro 4/3 OMD body?  I'm very interested as the "4/3 to micro 4/3 adapter" is a rebate special for us new OMD owners.

Sorry, I haven't owned any 4/3 lenses. Frankly, I never considered them. Reportedly, AF is not the fastest on m43 and they are larger than native m43 lenses. Comparing to manual focus they are more expensive (adapters are more expensive too).

So I stick with some native lenses (some great buys here btw, like 45/1.8) and some MF lenses (most of them are Canon FD)
