of course you would need the 4/3 to micro 4/3 adaptor

But, has any one tried this lens with af100?

Thanks in advance.

I'm sure it is a good lens but you might want to wait on the Panasonic which hopefully will be out fairly soon. Hopefully.

Panasonic has a 14-50 but, it's f3.8 and it doesn't have the fstop control on the lens.... is there any lens to be out soon?

There are some rumors Panasonic will release new lenses around that range. We'll c, Pekin bey.

The 4/3 Pana/Leica lens is a 2.8-3.5; I have it for my E-1. Nice lens, stabilised, good rendering.

There was also a kit lens in that range that came out with the Panasonic L10 which was slower and not as good. AFAIK this was not available except as part of the kit (or broken from a kit).
