Adaptor: Olympus E-System lenses to fit a Canon 600d

I'm shooting a wedding using my E-System gear which serves me well.
I've been offered a second camera for the day as backup - a Canon 600d.

Is there an adaptor that will allow these lenses below to fit a Canon 600d?
I know it's APS-C but wondered if at all possible to use them albeit with limited functionality if need be.

I have a range of excellent four thirds lenses at my disposal:
Zuiko 50mm Macro f1.2
Zuiko ED 7 - 14mm

Zuiko ED 12-60mm
Zuiko 90-250 mm f/2.8

Thank you

No, there is no adapter. The Canon EF and EF-S flange distance is 42mm, the classic 4/3rds lenses have a flange distance of 38.67mm, and the micro 4/3rds lenses have a flange distance of 19.25mm. You can mount lenses with a larger flange distance on a camera with a smaller flange distance by using a spacer.

Note, in addition, the lenses are designed to illuminate a smaller sensor.

I don't recall which of those lenses have real mechanical focusing -- if they are electronic only, then you would also need something that translates from Canon to Four Thirds.

If you can't find a spare E-x, the only option might be to rent a micro 4/3rds camera (probably E-m1 mark II or E-m1x) and a MMF-3 adapter. Or rent a Canon lens for the Canon body.
