I’m not entirely sure why I’m posting links to reviews of Four Thirds system lenses I’ve tested, as very few folks will look at them… it’s essentially a dead camera system now. Micro Four Thirds has taken over, and no more Four Thirds camera, or lenses will be released.
Anyway, in the interests of completeness, here are the few Four thirds format lenses I’ve reviewed,. Those with Micro Four Thirds bodies may be able to use these lenses with an adapter, but the extra bulk of these optics seems to defeat the object of a compact system like MFT.
Olympus Four Thirds System Zoom Lens Reviews
- Olympus Zuiko 9-18mm f/4-5.6 ED
A nice, cheap ultra-wide lens. Might be well-suited for use on MFT with an adapter due to its compact size.
- Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6
Not amazing, and not all that compact. Expensive.
- Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 18-180mm f/3.5-6.3
Not very wide and not very sharp. A bit too bulky for MFT too.
- Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 12-60mm f/2.8-4 SWD
A belting lens. Should be fairly cheap used too.
- Olympus Zuiko Digital 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 II
Probably the sharpest Four Thirds format zoom I tested.
- Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50-200mm 1:2.8-3.5 SWD
A fantastic lens. Shame its obsolete now though.
Olympus Four Thirds System Prime Lens Reviews
- Olympus Zuiko Digital 35mm f/3.5 Macro
A belting budget Macro optic. Probably still very desirable used for use on MFT.
- Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50mm f/2 Macro review
Probably Olympus’ finest modern lens.
