    Four-Thirds v Micro Four-Thirds

    This may seem like a dumbo question to most of you but I am new to the 4/3 formats.

    Can the Pani Micro 4/3 lenses be used on the Oli standard 4/3 cameras?

    No, the flange focal distances are longer for the 4/3 lenses. However, via an adapter, the standard 4/3 lenses can be used on a micro 4/3 camera, moreover some combos will even retain AF function.

    Here's some additional info for you to look at: http://www.four-thirds.org/en/microft/index.html
