    Its been on my mind for awhile but my question is can you get the AF to work on a Canon EF lens on a m4/3 camera?
    I was thinking maybe buy an EF to m4/3 lens adapter with an AF confirm chip then buy an AF chip to mount on the outside of the adapter and wire it to the rear AF chip? Im no expert but in my mind I dont see why it shouldnt work or if theres an adapter out there that can do it.

    I don't know if the AF confirm will work or not, but I would think the bigger concern would be aperture control. AF is nothing but a luxury, but aperture control is a necessity for proper function. To have aperture control you will need to get an expensive electronic EF-to-m4/3 adapter, like that made by Redrock or Birger.

    Just in case you hadn't gotten that part covered yet... ;)

    Yea I've seen some of their adapters before lol and I havent got that kinda money :p
    I was just wondering shouldnt it be straight forward if you connect the pins to the right ones on the m4/3 camera it should work right? I know EF lenses use less pins
