    I am currently using and olympus pen epl-1..
    I just recently brought a 4/3 adapter to connect 40-150mm 4/3 lens to my camera.

    So i see that there are other micro 4/3 camera out there.
    So I was wondering if I can use a panasonic micro 4/3 lens on my epl-1. or will i need an adapter for it..

    I would also like to know would I be able to buy any 4/3 lens and attach it on my camera using the 4/3 adapter i have already. :biggrin:

  3. Olympus bodies are compatible with all of the 4/3 lenses (Olympus, Panasonic, Leica, and Sigma) including autofocus via the Oly MMF-1, MMF-2 or equivalent Panasonic adapter. AF can be a bit slow in some cases.

    simply put, yes you can - all the micro four thirds lenses use the same mount and don't discriminate against olympus/panasonic body.
