How can you tell whether a 4/3 lens uses phase or contrast detect? I did not see this in the specs.Be aware that most 4/3 lenses use the faster phase detect AF system which requires a mirror. :43: uses contrast detect which is very accurate but a bit slower. Most 4/3 lenses hence will AF rather slowly on a :43: body, albeit eventually quite accurately.
Yes my lack of clarity and they do make a very highly regarded Panasonic Leica 14-150 for 4/3. I've seen it rated as the best zoom lens of any format.I thought the Panny 14-140 is a micro 4/3. Do they also make a 4/3 version?
