question

Can I use it on Olympus E-420? Will AF work?Thanks.
Asked by: Nikola A.
The Olympus E-420 has the four thirds mount while the Panasonic LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 II ASPH. Lens has the micro four thirds mount. So this lens would not be compatible with the E-420. You could use the Olympus Zuiko Digital 25mm f/2.8 Lens on your E-420.

question

I'm an extreme beginner to photography so technical words confuse me. I'm looking for a lens that is good for both everyday use and for pictures from the top of mountains. Is this a good landscape and everyday use lens?
Asked by: Kevin L.
It's a very good basic lense for everyday use. But you'll want a variable lens like the 14-140 to get good near and far. As I hike a lot, I tend to purchase the lighter lenses for my camera to not weigh me down. Have fun!
