      Wrong. Works just like an Olympus lens on an Olympus body. Autofocus, metering, the whole enchilada. Because the OM-D has in-body IS, you even still have IS.

      Man, Panasonic & Olympus are doing a really ****ty job promoting MFT if we're 3 years in and people are still confused about this!

      In their manuals they refuse to acknowledge each other's presence. The only time I've seen Panasonic acknowledge Olympus is in the little micro 4/3rds logo which is a registered trademark of Olympus. Everywhere in the manual it just substitutes Olympus with "other" or "non-Panasonic". Now that more native lenses from Voigtlander and Sigma are coming out, I guess those substituted words are not Olympus specific anymore.

      right, but they could write "olympus, panasonic, sigma, voigtlander, or other MFT lenses"...

      Ordered one as well. It's a great lens, I enjoyed using it on my GF1 kit.

      I hope Panasonic updates this lens at some point. Image quality is great, but it's sloooooow to focus.

      I'm hoping it's less so on the OM-D...

      It's just the focusing mechanism/motor that's slow.
