Yeah, I find it poor of Olympus to not to implement this feature on their cameras, especially given how they never produced a fast prime for 4/3

Yes! Was very poor judgement for the four thirds manufacturers to not support each other more fully. Having an aperture ring (and shutter speed dial ((Panasonic L-1)) is wonderful.

I'd have sold direct via here had I have known. The ring only works with Panasonic cameras. I think there was one called an L10. Not sure if it works with m4/3 panasonic and an adaptor.
