I am about to pull the trigger on the above camera body and would consider your lenses if suitable.
Thanks.
Not really Rebnats. They are 4/3 lenses for the Olympus DSLR bodies, now no longer made. You can use them on Micro 4/3, but need an adapter like the MMF-3, which makes them about 15mm longer. They were also designed for phase detect AF (PDAF), which only the two E-M1 bodies have on sensor. Your camera only has contrast detect AF (CDAF), which will be slow and unreliable with these lenses.
