Anyone know if the macro function will work on panny bodies?
Yes it will. The firmware was also updated back in March 2012. I got my girlfriend a GF-5 for a gift and tried my 12-50 on it.
The Lens Function button that's on the lens itself though probably won't work (sorry didn't test that and I don't have the camera hand now).
Just saw your question and since I have the Pana GH1 (bought for video but couldn't really get into it) and the Oly 12-50mm (bought together with the omd) sitting on the shelf eating dusts, so I took it to the backyard and tested the combo in macro mode (switched to macro mode on the lens). It worked quite well. Here is the quick result:
Cropped maybe around 60-70%
Cropped a bit more:
thanks for taking the time to do all that.
No worries. Do you intend to buy the 12-50mm to use on your GX1?
already did... on its way.
