You can, but as things are today, the OIS (optical image stabilization system) won't work

Rest assured that the lenses are gonna cost real money. Before you shell out, remember that Leica isn't what Leica used to be.

Do you really want a lens that's basically a bigger version of the 14-54 f2.8-3.5, andthe reason for it being bigger (the image stabilization system) won't even work on your E-300and, let's face it, it isn't a matter of Leica not being what it used to be....this is not REALLY a Leica lens at alland it's going to be expensive.
