I have used the Leica summicron 50/2 on my EPL2 (as well as other M mount and LTM lenses) and they work very well with an adapter. You don't need to set "shoot without lens", and it works perfectly in aperture priority or fully manual. I think it should be the same with the EM5. The cron has stunning colours and is very sharp.

I just recieved my EM5 and am thinking of getting an adaptor to try my Leica 50mm Summilux 1.4. Anyone have exprience with EM5 + Leica lagacy lens? Does EM5 have "shoot without lens option"? Can i use priority mode with Leica 50mm? How does it work out for you.
