OK, Bobby's post that you quoted was referring to 4/3 lenses in general being adaptable via MMF3, but it seems that you were talking about certain specific lenses. I was just curious to clarify because others have been generally happy with other lenses like Zuiko 150/2 adapted and I have a couple of Zuiko lenses coming my way soon.
No, if you look at what I quoted from bobby (which I've included below), you'll see that he asks if any 4/3 lens can be adapted to a m43 body with an MMF-3.
I responded with "Sure, it'll mount to any m43 cam, but it won't AF worth a damn", which is true. The vast majority of 4/3 lenses were designed for PDAF, which 4/3 cameras had but m43 did not, up until the release of the E-M1. Even today, the only two m43 cameras that have PDAF are the E-M1, and E-M1 II.
There were a few 4/3 lenses that were designed for CDAF and work pretty well, and those lenses are:
- 9-18 f/4-5.6
- 14-54 II f/2.8-3.5
- 75-300 f/4-5.6
Of those, the only one that's really worth a damn is the 14-54 II, as the others have already been duplicated as native m43 lenses, and thus focus faster, are smaller, and lighter. The rest of the 4/3 lenses aren't really useful on the majority of m43 cameras unless you are in ideal light, your subject isn't moving, and you don't mind waiting a few seconds for AF confirmation.
Those people that are happy with the 150 f/2 are either shooting it on the E-M1/E-M1 II, or manually focusing it on another m43 body.
With the MMF3 adaptor I would think that you can mount any 4/3 lens to any m43 body. No?
Sure, it'll mount to any m43 cam, but it won't AF worth a damn...
