Mount on E-M10

When my 50-500mm BIGMA "died" late last year, I needed a comparable replacement and so I went out and bought a Panasonic LUMIX G Leica DG Vario-Elmar 100-400mm F4.0-6.3 ASPH (aka PL 100-400).

This lens works well on both my E-M1 Mk II and E-M1, and so it should. My brother, his wife and I are paying a visit to friends, John and Lee, who live just north of Stanthorpe in Queensland's Granite Belt.

Lee is also a keen photographer who uses an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mk II. We sometimes swap lenses to test each other's lenses and get an idea as to whether we would like to expand our collections. I suggested that Lee try out the PL 100-400 on her E-M10 Mk II and see what she thought...... Problem!

It doesn't fit! Well actually, it does fit, but it won't turn to lock so that you can use the lens. All my other (Olympus) lenses work, but not the PL 100-400, which works on both my E-M1 cameras.

Has anybody else had this problem? Is there something that I am missing?

Re: Mount on E-M10

Not tried that lens on my E-M10ii but I have noticed there are some minor variations in the lens mounts for my E-PL5, E-M10 and E-M10ii.
On the E-PL5 and 10ii my Holga lens - which has a very stiff focus adjustment - works fine. On the E-M10 it just span on the mount
As it's a £15 plastic toy lens I didn't worry about it, assuming the E-M10ii works fine with her lenses then I'd not force the issue (literally) for fear of damaging something.
It does seem odd with "real" lenses though - I'd have thought the mount would be very carefully engineered.

Re: Mount on E-M10

Some people have had problems with the 100-400 on Oly bodies, particularly the M1ii, which as I recall resulted in premature wear to the mount (canít remember if it was on lens or body). Thereís bound to be stuff about it on the interwebs.

At the least that shows there must be some differences between the bayonets. It has also been alleged that the weathersealing systems on Panny and Oly top lenses & bodies arenít fully compatible, although Iíve had my 12-35 f2.8 on both M1i and ii bodies throughout days and days of pouring rain and have never had an issue.

Re: Mount on E-M10

Maybe visit an Oly dealer and try it on another eom10 Mii?

Yes. Great suggestion. I'll take my PL 100-400 in to work tomorrow and ask my favourite camera store in downtown Brisbane if I can try it out.
