    Ive been shooting Nikon DSLR for years, but recently decided to buy a mirrorless. I got an Olympus OMD em10 mkii, I really like it so far.

    I got a good deal on a 40-150mm zuiko lens. Problem is, I didn't look carefully on the listing and it's actually the older 4/3 not micro.

    What I'm trying to decide is if I should buy an adapter to make it work or just buy the newer version at best but for $100. I paid $45 for this lens and an adapter is about $40.
    What would you do if it were you?

    Yep. The 40-150 is $99 right now... new. I'd totally return the old version and buy the new one.

    I got it on mercari, the don't do returns. It's okay though I'll just list it for sale on eBay.

    That's kind of what I figured, but just wanted to make sure in case the old version had something special about it. I'll go down to Best buy and pick one up this week.

    That is a problem, you have to be CAREFUL which lens you get, so you don't get a 4/3 lens when you want a m4/3 lens.

    BTW, the EM10 is a great camera.

    I would if they would allow it, Mercari doesn't allow returns. It's okay I'll just list it and resell it.
    I learned that the hard way, my mistake for not looking at the listing carefully.

    I'm really liking it! I haven't touched my Nikon DSLR since I got this camera. I love how compact it is and it has made street photography so much easier. IMG_20190301_054322_676.jpg IMG_20190304_090503_846.jpg IMG_20190301_154902_329.jpg IMG_20190310_105440_203.jpg
