This is advertised as "four-thirds" but

I've found this lens on eBay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sigma-DC-1...item4d073b44f0

It's listed as "Four-thirds", but also as "for canon". Will it fit my E-600?

No, it won't. The bit where it says it's 'four thirds' is the description that Ebay automatically inserts and which the seller has little or no control over. I usually ignore that part and just read the description at the bottom that has been written by the seller personally. This clearly states that it's Canon fit.

Remember you can always ask the seller if you're not sure about something though. I bet she hasn't even noticed that it mentions four thirds in the Ebay description.
