    Me! I mounted the old style Oly 50-200 with a Panasonic adapter onto my OM-D.
    I was pleasantly surprised at how well it focused in autofocus and the quality of the resulting image. Of all my 4/3 lenses, it is the only one that works well.
    In addition, it has a tripod mounting ring which makes it very solid feeling. I also tried incorporating the Olympus 1.4 extender and it worked just as well.

    Go for it!

    Got a great deal on one of these "tanks" and so far its proving itself worthy of its stellar reputation

    I just got this lens and I'm pretty excited with it. Here are 3 of my first few shots. It's pretty awesome. All shots manually focused

    This is an oak tree across the street shot at dusk through a high window in my house.

    I tried to shoot the moon in the last couple of days, but every time I finally set up the tripod and camera, the clouds roll in :mad:  finally I got one chance..... Anyway, I think the pictures will be sharper once I get a clear shot and focus properly.

    Focus is slightly slower than the SWD version I had back in college but still plenty of fast on the EM-1.

    This is an incredible architecture shot. Can I ask how do you like the way this lens auto-focuses on the E-M1 and E-M5? I have both, but have never used a 4/3 lens. I tried PM'ing you but your inbox is full.
