What I didn't understand is that the specs says it has HDMI Output but it does not shoot HD video?
My Olympus 25/2.8 Pancake lens didn't AF on the G1 until I updated the firmware of the camera and the lens. Now it does with the adapter , although a bit slower and noisier than the kit zoom.
I did a test yesterday with the two lenses and will post a comparison shortly. Early view is not much difference and the zoom may be better.
I guess the HDMI output was there for the future.
