Default Available E-EPL1 lenses?

I was wondering if there was a list of available e-PL1 lenses that will AF out there anywhere?

Considering picking up one of these, but I was not sure on the options for lenses.

Thanks

Well, if you're talking about lenses for the E-PL1 from Olympus, check out this page and scroll to the bottom. There really aren't that many yet:

Here is a more complete list of micro four-thirds lenses from Olympus, Panasonic and Leica as of this date:

As you already realize, there are many more lenses that will work on micro four-thirds cameras with adaptors. And Sigma offers a lens or two in a micro four-thirds mount - but those lenses weren't created specifically for the format.

Not very many lenses will work on the EPL1 (and I mean AF) w/o an adapter. Olympus offers 4 and Panasonic offers 4 (if I'm not mistaken). The Lumix lenses are the 14-42mm, 14-45mm, 45-200mm and the 20mm. Now, if you get the 4/3 to m4/3 adapter (the Pana adapter is much cheaper and works just the same), then every Zuiko 4/3 lens will work on the EPL1.

Panny also makes an 8mm fish and the 7-14. There is also a 45 macro and a 14-140 superzoom.

You can use all the 4/3 lenses for the olympus dslr with a 4/3 adapter and they will autofocus and meter properly. This includes all the sigma, panny and olympus 4/3 lenses.

In M4/3 you have the the oly 17mm, 14-42mm, 14-150, and 9-18. Panny has the 20mm, 14-45mm, 14-42mm, 45-200mm, 14-140mm, 8mm fish, 7-14mm, and 45mm macro.

And the 2 new panny that has not arrived yet 14mm and the 100-300. So the lenses options are growing.
