I have a Panasonic DMC-GF3 camera body. I intend to buy a used Olympus Zuiko 35mm f/3.5 ED Macro Lens.

What adapter will I require?

  • \$\begingroup\$ thank you for your answer, do I assume that the Brand of lens is therefore not relevant to the choice of adapter? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Correct, at least for the most part. You'll have to research amongst the specific adapters you're considering. There might be a minor feature difference, firmware issue, cost, etc., that will go into your consideration. But mainly, it's the mount format that matters more than anything. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ See also: Can I use lens brand X on interchangeable lens camera brand Y?. The answer is different if the Zuiko 35mm lens you want to adapt is a film-era OM-mount lens. :) \$\endgroup\$

The lens is for a Four-Thirds mount camera. Your Panasonic is a Micro Four-Thirds (MFT) mount camera. Thus, you will need a Four-Thirds to Micro Four-Thirds adapter.
