12-60mm contrast detection

I am considering the lens options for my E-P1 in 2010 and the best upgrade I can think of is to use a fouthirds to microfourthirds adaptor such as the MMF2. The idea is that I can use my 8mm and 12-60mm, getting way better glass quality than any available M4/3 lens for less than £100.

My real focus will be on landscapes and my Cokin P filters, using the 12-60 with the E-P1 so I want to make sure that it will work with contrast detection AF in S-AF mode.

Please can anybody comment.

Thanks,

Nick

Re: 12-60mm contrast detection

both lenses will work - all 43 lenses and combinations work (I've used the 8mm+EC20 for example)

Re: 12-60mm contrast detection

The 12-60 definitely does work well. Here is a link to some I took just before Christmas with exactly that lens on an E-P1 http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=12324

If you want to have a look at the original JPGs send me a PM with an email address
