    Hi everyone,
    I'm new to MFT and just bought EP-1. I am thinking of using it with the olympus adapter (mmf-2) and either Sigma 18-50mm lens or the Oly 12-60mm lens. Does anyone here use this configuration? Is the AF significantly slower? Any comments on these lens with EP1?

    I do not have the lenses listed but i have others that are also non-CDAF compliant in liveviwe therefore the AF will be significantly slower than when using a 4/3 camera. If you search the forums there are some posts about 12-60 on m4/3 but again do no expect it to be fast. The only good news is that it will AF just fine for static subjects but for the moving ones will be a challenge.
