Trigger voltage is quite low on those old OM units, there's a trigger voltage chart floating around the web somewhere, but there still best used with caution I think Smile

That 12-60 ED might be ok on the OMD via adapter, still not quite as quick as the newest M4/3 lenses though.

I really wanted to keep my old 14-54 but being a Mk1 the focus would not have been that good so I`m told.

Yeah would probably work with the adapter but I fear it might make the camera lens-heavy and not be practical for a walking around lens.

And wow, not as quick as the newest M4/3 lenses!? - I think it's pretty fast. So what you're telling me is that now I can look forward to warp speed with these new 4/3 lenses?

No not warp speed, those lenses are optimised for phase detection, they will focus but slower than M4/3 lenses.

And its going to be big and heavy as you say.

And we're all trying to get away from big and heavy.

Yes defeats the object a bit Smile

You will love the new M4/3 lenses, have you any of the later flash units.

No, I have no flash units - I sold my old manual stuff, not thinking......

To be honest the old units are just fun, modern units are so much better.

Not been out with it yet, snapped a few things around the house, as you do Smile

I've just been to adorama and I can get a bundle (the OM plus the 12-50)and get the ED 40-150 in addition for just a mere $100 more - I say mere, because once you go over a thousand bucks, that extra 100 seems like so little.

Sounds like a bargain to me, the 40-150 for a $100 Smile

Do you spend quite a lot of time in Norway, the light is not always great in the winter months

Am in Norway usually in the summer months and in the US the rest of the year. But my hometown, Bergen, suffers from a lot of rainy days, and then it can be dark.

A small fast prime or two could be handy then, something like the Pany 14mm pancake Smile
