Yes, see Section (5) in the OP, plus the second example in this post.is it possible to use an OM lens with the following setup:
4/3 to OM mount
Only reason I ask is that the 4/3 to OM mounts are cheaper on eBay than the OM to m4/3 mount.
This is where a GF1 owner might want to step forward and help out...The automated focus assist does not seem to work with my GF1, cheap e-bay adapter and Oly f1.8 50mm. I can use the manual focus and see it turn into focus but only small, not magnified. Any suggestions?

Thanks, it was also to verify by simply shooting with the lensThat is correct.
2x factor for FL. Aperture remains the same. ie.
28mm f2.8 - becomes a 56m f2.8 when placed on an µ43 body.
I feel you.I quick thanks for the very informative post.
I hadn't really considered using adapted lenses when jumping into m43, but I now find that i'm using them more than native lenses. something about physical manual focus (not by wire) really appeals to me.
I was lucky enough to have inherited a couple of old SLR's (70's era), which have been sitting in storage for years. lenses including (from memory):
- Pentax SMC Takumar 50mm 2.0 (glued to the GF2 for the last 2 weeks)
- Minolta Rokkor PG 50mm f1.4. (waiting on adapter)
- Soligor 135mm tele ?? (waiting on adapter)
- SUN Optics Multi-Zoom 70-210mm ?? (not the most practical, but looks like a beast on GF2)
the downside now is that although the lenses were free I've decided I 'need' an Olympus body for the IBIS. EPL2 is on the way!
