there were 2 macros for the 4/3 system, a 35/3.5 and a 50/2.
I got a similar comment about my old 9-18 with adapter on my old e-P2 ... he said something like "Oh, I read it was slow to focus, this is fast."I agree with the VERY high speed of focus with the DSLR 9-18. Yeah, it's big, but neither me or the sales clerk at the shop could discern any difference in focus speed INSIDE the shop!
When I switched to m43 I kept four-thirds 14-54 mkII, 40-150 and 9-18. Currently I have the 40-150 and the 9-18, I sold my beloved 14-54 mkII because it was really too big for my e-p5.
What did you replace it with? I have refrained from replacing the 14-54 simply because I worry that I won't find anything as good optically!
To hunt for a 4.3rds lens just for the adapter seems a bit backward...
