Hi,

All lenses that meet the microfourthirds standards should be able to communicate with the body, regardless of the manufacturer of the body or the lens.

while I don't own a Panny camera or lens, I do own an E-PL1 and use a Panasonic fourthirds to microfourthirds adapter. I also have an EC-14 teleconverter.

I've just finished attaching the Panasonic DMW-MA1 adapter to my E-PL1. Then added the EC-14 teleconverter + 12-60mm SWD Olympus fourthirds lens. Everything works as it should. The lens focus without issue and also focuses quite quickly, I might add.

Hope that helps.

Zig

It depends on the lens and body combo with panny, the gh1, g1, gf1 had some compatibility issues with 4/3 lenses.

According to panny the TC will not work with certain bodies.
