  • HELP! how well will this lens work on my E620 ?

    I spotted this the other day, would this need an adapter from4/3d's to olympus om fitting ?

    also what functions would I get with this lens ? I guess it would be all manual yes or no ?
    thanks

    You'll need the adaptor, and yes it will be all manual. You may want to think about getting a 'focus confirm' version of the adaptor. I have no experience of the lens, but for the money you'll pay, you are close to the price of a s/h zd 70-300 which I would expect to be sharper. A small amount of pp cropping would give you the same reach. Anyone else out there with some helpful experience?

      I would agree. I would think that you could find a used, "mint" Zuiko 70-300 for the same price (or close to it). It would also give you the versatility of a zoom, just in case you were to find yourself too close to your subject. I love mine.
