E-P1, four thirds adapter and Sigma 105mm f2.8 macro

Hi all

I was wondering whether using the configuration
E-P1, four thirds adapter and Sigma 105mm f2.8 macro (Four Thirds) - will this work and are there are any limitations? eg will AF still be functional.

thx

David

no reason why not

when the E-P1 came out we tested it with every combination of 43 lenses we could find (but not that Sigma) including things like the 8mm +EC20 and they all operated fine - although focusing wasn't earthshatteringly fast.

One of the members in the Olympus Sarfari Group borrowed my Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro and put it on her Pen with the 4/3rd adaptor.

Other than looking slightly odd it worked perfectly. Actually so good she didn't want to return the lense!

Regards

Simon
