    No crop, same image circle - but why would you want to buy that lens for either 4/3 or Micro 4/3 - it's huge, it's not fast, and it's not even very wide - . The Panny 14mm f2.5 is better in every way, as well as cheaper for use on M4/3.

    That lens has a much bigger image circle than 4/3 - it's a full frame 14mm lens.

    Well, hang on a minute. There's no crop difference between 4/3 and m43. Both use the same image circle. BUT, both have the same crop factor as compared to full frame. So that 14mm lens has the same FOV as a 28mm lens on a full frame camera, whether you put it on 4/3 or m43.

    OK. I was not planning to buy the lens, just use as an example. By crop factor I meant between the 2 lens types (not compared to FF). Thanks for the clarification.
