Will this lens fit an olympus OM-D EM10 mark ii?

Will this lens fit an olympus OM-D EM10 mark ii?
Asked by: Stoufa
Not directly, no. The Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4-5.6 Lens is designed for the larger Four Thirds lens mount used on Olympus' larger DSLR cameras. The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera is a mirrorless camera that uses the smaller Micro Four Thirds lens mount. If you own this lens (which has been discontinued and is no longer avaialble for purchase new) and you wish to connect it to the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera, you may purchase the Olympus MMF-3 Four Thirds Lens to Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount Adapter, B&H # OLMMF3, or the Vello Auto Lens Adapter - Four Thirds Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera, B&H # VELAEMFTFT, for your usage needs. If you are looking to purchase a new lens, the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4-5.6 R Lens (Black), B&H # OL401504B, would be a similar alternative option that would not require a lens adapter to connect to your camera.

Will this lens work on the Blackmagic Pocket 4k?

Will this lens work on the Blackmagic Pocket 4k?
Asked by: Rachel Marie
The Olympus 12-60mm f/2.8-4 ED SWD Zuiko Zoom Lens for Olympus Digital Cameras, B&H # OL126028L, was designed for the larger (original) Four Thirds lens mount. It will not natively fit the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K. If you wish to mount the lens on the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, you would need to purchase a lens adapter, such as the Olympus MMF-3 Four Thirds Lens to Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount Adapter, B&H # OLMMF3, or the Vello Auto Lens Adapter - Four Thirds Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera, B&H # VELAEMFTFT.

question

I have a lenses adapter on an Alpha a6000 that requires me to use this lense manually (which is fine). However I can not seem to focus using the focus ring. The ring rotates yet nothing happens. It this a defect in my particular lens, or can you only focus when shoot in auto?
Asked by: Ezell J.
Depending upon which lens you own, it is likely an electronic-focus lens even when focusing manually with the focus ring. If this is the case, the lens still needs electricity to move the motor and glass elements in order to focus the lens. It will therefore not be compatible with your manual-only adapter.

question

Hello, there. I'm upgrading from kit lens. Is this compatible with Olympus E-PL2? Thanks in advance!
Asked by: Anonymous
This is not a micro 4/3 lens. You would need an adapter. https://<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/979174-REG/vello_lae_mft_ft_auto_lens_adapter.html target= _blank >www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/979174-REG/vello_lae_mft_ft_auto_lens_adapter.html</a>
