    Hi, I'm Edwin, a new member in this forum, I just bought my own E-P2, I also owned E-620 DSLR.
    My new E-P2 came with 14-42mm kit lens, and I also bought the MMF-1 adapter, so I can use this new baby with my older four third lenses :wink:
    Then I notice, that when using my older four third lenses (all of them: 25mm pancake, 50mm macro, 12-60mm SWD and 50-200mm SWD), I see that the aperture blades of these lenses always react when I point my E-P2 to brighter light. The aperture seems to be closing in -excuse my English- (getting smaller).
    Is this a normal thing with the PEN series? Especially E-P2?
    I would be grateful for all your replies.
    Thanx before :2thumbs:

    Hello Edwin, and welcome to the home of m4/3rds :friends:

    Yes, that's entirely normal for the E-P2 (and the Panasonic bodies do it also to a lesser degree). I think it's to do with the live view levels.

    Thanx Brian, that's what I thought so, something to do with the live view, to protec the sensor maybe, but I have to make sure 'bout this, since when I try the live view system on my E-620, this thing never happen to me.
    Thanx alot man.
