question

More specifically, will it work with my 7D Mark II?
Asked by: Ronald W.
While I do not see the beginning of your inquiry (all I see above is More specifically, will it work with my 7D Mark II? ), if you are referring to the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 30mm f/3.5 Macro Lens (B&H # OL3035ED) listed above, then no, this lens is not compatible for use on the Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR camera, nor is there a lens adapter to connect the lens to the Canon 7D Mark II DSLR camera.
