      Does anybody actually use GH2 with Olympus Zuiko 12-60mm lense? 

       

      I read a few reviews and some people complain that 4/3 –> M4/3 adapter that you have to put between Panasonic GH2 and this lense allows for manual focus only and/or compromises lens performance.

      Will appreciate any input and recommendations about M4/3 lense with similar zoom range and aperture.

       

      Thank you.

      Hi – I use my GH2 and GH3 with the Olympus Zuiko 11-22mm f2.8-3.5 and a Panasonic MA-1 adapter.  Yes, autofocus is slow and noisy – but it does work.

       

      In general, 4/3 lenses cost less than their m4/3 counterparts and they capture fabulous images. I love 4/3 lenses.

       

      Cheers,

      Bill:

       

      You were right: this lense +adapter + body combination works but AF is slow and noisy.

      Case closed – I return lens into the store.

       

      Thank you,

      Alexei
