    Do you know if this lens rattlesnakes (clicks) when used on Olympus cameras?

    Chuck, please also weigh in if you have info, but I provide near-certain assurance that this lens will not rattlesnake. The sound is caused by the aperture opening up to wide for focusing and then closing down for optimal live view performance and has only been noticeable with the faster (f/1.7 and f/1.4) primes.

    Hello,

    Since we have not seen the lens yet, I have no way of knowing but doubt there will be issues with the lens on an Olympus body.

    I remember using the Leica D Vario-Elmarit 14-50 mm F2.8-F3.5 ASPH lens on my E-300 and it fit and functioned as if Olympus had made it.

    There's a guy over on DPR using the lens on an OM-D. He hasn't mentioned this as an issue.
