    Thinking about it, the Sigma 4.5mm is offered for both Canon and Sigma APS-C which have a 14.8mm and 13.8mm frame height, Four thirds isn't that far off it at 13mm due to the different aspect ratio (4:3 not 3:2) thus you might not even need a speedbooster with it.

    You don't need a speedbooster, it fits on the sensor perfectly.

    Depending on your quality requirements, a screw in camcorder fisheye adapter may work.

    I suppose Hugin and other softwares should be able to "fish" any image, if this can be an option.

    It can reproject to fisheye but without going to a lower focal length circular fisheye you won't get the full 180° hemispherical FoV.

    Yes, but with the Rokinon 7.5 you should get reasonably close (or the 9 BCL if on a budget). From the post it's not clear if it is just about the look or if there are stricter FoV and IQ requirements.

    Was there anything that people could have used to shoot circular fisheye in 1990, or 1980 that adapts well to MFT?

    C-mount for 16mm, probably.
