    I am curious if anyone is using their Oly 25mm on their MFT body. How is the performance compared to the Panasonic 25mm and the Panasonic 20mm? Thanks!

    What type of performance? Optically, it's not as good, but it's a good deal less expensive, so that's understandable. In terms of AF, it's much slower than the 25, and somewhat slower than the 20 (takes around a second usually). It's also a bit noisier.

    If you already have the lens, it may make sense to get the adapter and try it. But otherwise, I'd suggest looking at native lenses. There's the inexpensive Sigma 19/2.8 and 30/2.8 to look at as well (they're no larger than the 25/2.8 + adapter).
