    Hey, just got my GX7 and am super excited. My Olympus 9-18 that is suppose to be for 4/3 mount is physically larger than the Panasonic mount. Should I need an adapter or did I get the wrong lens (Olympus 9-18 ED 4-5.6? I thought I read that all M4/3 lenses should be interchangeable between brands so I am confused.

    Thanks in advance!

    The M4/3 mount will fit, the 4/3 one will need an adapter.

    Oh man, I feel silly. In all my research I never understood there were two systems 4/3 and M4/3. Thanks for clarifying I appreciate your help.
