Excerpt: Bought this with the adaptor for my OM-D ; old old technology for the new micro four thirds and definitely not designed to be used on the micro four thirds system DESPITE what Olympus has told me ; autofocus takes several seconds even in broad daylight and for indoors forget about using it ;the lens is very sharp when you focus manually ; the lens was designed for use on the older E systems and its technology is at least 8 years old ; if you are thinking of purchasing it...
Summary: When I purchased this lens I understood it to be a fast lens for low light action sports. What I learned is Olympus is worthless in low light fast action. This lens is only fast at 50 and slow at the 200. Don't waste your time with olympus. Get Canon. It took me twenty years of fighting with olympus but now I am a happy camper with canon.
