    I want to experiment using my Nikon 10.5 fisheye lens with my OMD E-M5. I have the G-adaptor for Nikon, so there's no problem there.

    Can someone point to where in the menu I set the focal length for this adapted lens? Or perhaps it's not that important to set the focal length to the lens?

    the only place the OMD let's you specify focal length is for the IBIS. highlight the type you want and press option. then change the focal length.

    unfortunately focal length does not make its way into the EXIF

    And when you set IBIS you use the actual focal length (or as close as you can to it).

    You will get to pick from 8, 10 or 12mm (on OM-D) so I'd pick 10mm. Definitely do not pick longer than the actual focal length.

    Touchscreen on SCP? touch IS then info to dial in focal length. Otherwise menu - cam2 - Image Stabilizer then dig down to focal length.
