    Hi all,

    I have a chance of getting a copy in good condition of this lens. I have the original 4/3 - m4/3 adapter.
    In the meantime I get the EP-5 I'm curious to know if someone has tried it on Epl-3 and if you think there will be any general improvement on AF performance and how it will render on the EP-5.

    Having tried a few 4/3 lenses on an EM5, I'd say not likely! It should render quite well, however.

    I had this lens (also had a 4/3 body) and it was very sharp. AF speed was fine on the 4/3 body. However, it was slow focusing with using the Olympus adapter on the EPL-5 and EM5. Too slow and big for me as a walk around lens on the u4/3 bodies.
