You can ask other members of the forum for their experiences of using it on an E-M5 as I haven't got one to try it on, but it is supposed to be usable.


You are quite right Ralph, I forgot to mention this. As it was designed to work with "Contrast AF" it does indeed focus quick and accurately on the e-m5, at least that is what I found when I had an e-m5. In fact I would say it performed better on the e-m5 than when used on the e-m1.
