    If I buy an Oly 4/3 70-300 with the Oly adapter for the E-M1, it will function as fast as a M.Zuiko 70-300? Anyone done this with this lens? How's the AF? Looks to be about half the price, plus it opens up all the other 4/3 lens possibilities for me.

    Thanks!
     
  2. I doubt it. The 4/3 70-300mm was never very fast focusing on the E-series DSLRs (not the E-4xx or E-5xx bodies anyway).

    Will the 4/3rds 70-300mm with the appropriate adapter for the E-M1 have the same AF performance as the same 4/3rds 70-300mm lens on an E-series DSLR?

    Okay... moot point for me... Cyber Monday on Oly's web site took 25% off the refurb, making it $360.00. Couldn't pass THAT up!
