An interesting observation while waiting for a bargain priced M.ZD40-150 lens was with the ZD40-150 lens (with MMF-3). I know some lenses cannot keep up with the 9fps frame rate as the aperture is closed etc but using the ZD40-150 lens it slows down (to about 4fps) at 40mm & f/4.0 but seems to perform at 9fps (or close to it) when extended to 150mm at f/5.6. :confused:

The M.ZD12-50 will also slow the frame rate down when the aperture is closed down, but will the M.ZD40-150 lens do the same on the E-M5?
