Ok before you shoot me, let me explain

I do have an Olympus for the creative side of me, mainly for Live Composite etc, however last year i lost a close friend pre-covid and i was left his entire collection of M4/3 glass, its all the Pro Glass minus the 12-100

25mm F1.2

17mm F1.2

Voigtlander x 2 ( 25mm and 42.5mm) 0.95s and many many more

So i was thinking of having a play with them

Firstly can it be done ?

Pros and Cons on Aperture and Lens MM on a Sony.

Can we zoom on the sensor like on the R model, i presume we can, im just not near it to check.

Whats best adaptor to use ?

thanks all for the guidance.

Not a good idea


Danny i presume you hadnt used or didnt have the Zoom feature in the menu ?

Like you, I have FE and MFT gear. I’m puzzled why you would want to adapt MFT lenses to an FE body. You get better performance of the lenses on MFT bodies - more pixels, lens corrections, more functions.


It was just me staring at the mass of Lens and wondering. Granted i should use them on M4/3 but i was only thinking of the art of the possible.

I suppose using a 25mm F1.2 on a full Frame sensor and then zooming in, wouldnt be great, but if it worked it would save me spending 2k on the proper Sony 1, given the disadvantages :), i doubt id use a proper F1.2 much.

My Obvious plan is to sell the G9 and get the next EM1 when it appears, as i find i use my EM10 mk3 more than i do the G9 for the fun stuff
