Would a chipped adapter work for this?
Its a $20 solution...

This may work but I don't know if anyone tested such chips on m4/3 camera.
But it's worth to try. $25 for standalone 4/3 chip on eBay.

I don't actually know if 4/3 chip will work on m4/3. Contacts may be arranged differently. m4/3 has 2 more contacts and smaller mount diameter. What's sold on eBay is for 4/3 DSLRs.

So this

legacy to 4/3 adapter with chip plus 4/3 to m4/3 adapter with contacts.

is safer bet unless someone makes dedicated m4/3 chips (which I doubt).
