Thread: E-P2: OM or 4/3 Adapter?

  1. #1

    Default E-P2: OM or 4/3 Adapter?

    First of all, I would to say Hi to everyone.
    Just got myself E-P2 with 14-42mm lens kit. This is my 1st DSLR cam, zero knowledge about lenses.
    Regarding the OM and 4/3 adapters, what's the difference between these 2 adapters? If i were to purchase, which adapter should i buy?
    Appreciate if anyone could explain. Thanks.

    Firstly,the E-P2 is not a DSLR, I suggest reading some books about lenses. Regarding OM and 4/3 adaptors, the difference is that they mount different lenses onto the E-P2, the OM are the old legacy film lenses from Olympus and the 4/3 is the digital lenses from Olympus

    As to which adaptor, no one can tell you that since basically, depends on what lens you're going to use, can't possibly buy OM lens and 4/3 adaptor since obviously, they work together

    E-P2 is micro 4/3, so OM to 4/3 don't work on your camera. So no need to bother buying one.
