    adks, ny
    mebbe a dumb question....

    Is there any reduced functionality (no auto-focus, auto-exposure in any mode) when a four thirds lens is used with a m4/3 adapter?

    hello anne.

    not dumb.

    i used the lens on lumix g1 and gh1 bodies with the panasonic dmw-ma1 adapter.

    there was no auto focus. i used aperture priority mode. please let me know if you want to know about shutter priority and program mode function on a g3 body. if you do, i will test it out after work today and let you know.

    i used the lens mainly for portraits and macro work. for me lack of auto focus was not a big deal. i almost always use either aperture priority or manual modes as well.

    i have read that the lens will auto focus on oly m43 bodies, although slowly.

    in exchange for reduced functionality, you get the sharpest lens available for m43 system. bokeh is also fantastic. if you mainly want a lens for portraits and macro, i think this one works great.

    if you want a fast focusing fully functional short tele lens, the panasonic or oly 45mm m43 lenses would be better choices.

    please let me know if you want me to test shutter priority and program modes.

    cheers,

    charles
