I am sure this topic was discussed on this list previously, but
I was not paying attention at the time because I never thought
I'd need the answers :-).

Anyway, this weekend, I came across some Olympus AF lenses in
a shop, the lenses look new, but the boxes are all beat up.
It looked like they have been sitting there for quite a while,
so I am sure I can talk them down to a very reasonable price.
Two of the lenses I noticed were:
    AF 50mm / f2 Macro
    AF 35-105mm / f?

I've read on this list that the AF lens design was the same as
the non-AF design, so opticaly they should be the same.  My
questions are:
1) Will these AF lenses work on the non-OM-77 bodies (OM-1 etc.)?
2) If they do work, what is the quality of this combination
   compared to using the equivalent non-AF Olympus lenses?
