      I took this with mine and my old E520 amazingly it was 10 years ago now!



      Hadn't used it for ages but gave it a whirl a few months ago on my EM1 mk2 and it worked pretty well so I decided to keep mine. Good luck with the sale.

      Here's a recent EM1 mk2 shot

          This really is lovely little lens, weighing only 420grams for a decent telephoto... I'm sooo tempted. This is the one U are selling right?

          Would U consider shipping it to New Zealand if I pay the additional shipping costs? Meanwhile I will find out about making payments to the UK.

            Angelica, I have one of those lenses. It is a wonderful piece of equipment. But..... It has a 4/3 mount and so you will need an adapter, such as the MMF-3, to attach it to your camera. Secondly, the autofocus only works well on a camera which has Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF), such as the Olympus OM-D E-M1 (Mk I or Mk II or X) or the new E-M5 Mk III.

              Thanks for explaining... I didn't realize that 4/3 and micro four thirds needed an adapter... thought it was like full frame vs APS-C with other brands... simply a different crop factor!

                With Oly the crop factor (2x) is the same for MFT and FT but the mount is entirely different. The advantage of MFT is that the lenses and bodies are smaller for a similar performance.

                      Hi Russ

                      Yes still interested but before we exchange details and money can you reassure me that this lens combined with your Olympus MMF-3 Four Thirds Lens to Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount Adapter will be fully compatible with my Olympus EM1 mk1.

                      I don’t want to buy it and find it does not work. LOL.

                        Hi, yes i can confirm that it work fine on an Em1 mark 1,being a four thirds lens the auto focus is not as fast as micro four thirds but works fine.
                        i have included i couple of snap taken with my Em1 mark 1 at 70mm and 300mm

                              Interest on hold due to possibility moneybudgeted for lens required for urgent repairs.
