    Other than the typical focusing issues with using a 4/3 lens on a :43: body...are there any other issues?

    My MMF-3 will be here tomorrow and I can't wait to try it out on my EPM2 the 7-14, 8mm and 200mm f/4 hexanon lenses.

    Ahh, straight lines from an UWA lens...oh how I have missed you my dear 7-14. Focusing isn't as bad as I thought it would be...takes about a second to lock in. I even had to remove some moire...and that was wide open, handheld...

    It's big on the EPM2, but handles just fine.

    Did you have to correct distortion at all?

    Nope...the lens is that straight...just some cropping and minor adjustments in lr4

    I use my ED 7-14 on the E-M5 with LV often and apart from a sightly slower focus (doesn't matter with the subjects I use it for) it is just a good as it ever was on the E5.

    Beautiful lens. Built like a tank. Just couldn't make it work for landscapes though.

    Why not ? Flare? I do use my hand to shield a lot to reduce the flaring effects.
