    For example, I saw that with an adapter the regular four-thirds can be used with an adapter. But will it autofocus? Will anything besides the m4/3 autofocus on the Olympus or Panasonic?

    Real Name:
    Autofocus compatibility with some 4/3 lenses is an issue for the first generation Panasonic bodies (G1, GH1, GF1). I believe this was fixed in the second generation bodies, but I don't have one so can't confirm exactly.

    Refer to the second paragraph in Section (3) of the following thread:


    This includes a link to a list of CDAF optimised 4/3 lenses which will AF on all m4/3 bodies assuming that the lens firmware is up to date.

    all olympus 4/3 lens with either the panny or olympus adapter will focus on and olympus. And except for the gh1, g1, gf1 all the other panny bodies will focus. But continuous focus most of the time does not work on m4/3 bodies with 4/3 lenses.
