    I googled to check with 4/3 lenses are supposed to be CDAF friendly.
    All I found from Olympus is a 2008 press release, and zilch from Panasonic.
    Does anyone have a source, or could we build up a database?

    I thought I saw it on this site Four Thirds but when I looked I couldn't find it. Maybe I was mistaken.

    Forget databases for a moment :rolleyes: 

    If we are talking 43 lenses on m43 bodies Oly and Pany
    The best (and the most expensive are)
    PL 25/1.4 and PL 14-150 pretty much equal but 2-3 time slower that a m43 kit lens.
    The Oly 50/f2 macro and the OLy 12-60SWD are both bumblers, slow on the Pen m43 bodies but actually usable whiche is good because these are the two best lenses of that type, whilst on a GF1/G1 MF only the newer G series I think supports AF.
    Its a good idea to ask users as a database chart cant talk to you :biggrin::wink:
