Olympus m4/3 Lenses

The Olympus (and Panasonic) cameras use m4/3 mount lenses. m4/3 mount lenses have a 2x angle of view crop compared to 35mm and FX lenses. m4/3 mount lenses can only be used on Olympus or Panasonic m4/3 cameras; they cannot be used on Olympus or Panasonic 4/3 cameras (i.e. micro 4/3, not 4/3).
