You can buy such an adapter:

cheap. But it is only suited for manual legacy lenses like Nokton. Other 4/3 motorized lenses are not suited for 2 reasons: The field of view is too narrow, since the 4/3 sensor is smaller (than APS-C) and the lens is supposed to be designed for that. Secondly if you have no stop-ring manual exposure might be difficult (I suppose a focusing ring is always there).

Thanks for the link, do you know if anyone here has tried it with the Nokton and has sample images?
