I have used the Summilux Asph 50mm with the OM-D E-M5 using a fairly inexpensive adapter with good results. If using the widest aperture it is necessary to use magnification to get the focus spot on. The image quality is good.

Actually I find the Ricoh GXR with A12 M mount much easier due to the focus peaking. It is probably also better when using shorter focal length rangefinder lenses as it is the only camera apart from Leica M8 and M9 to have a sensor with microlenses correctly aligned to avoid colour shifts at the edges of the image. I have not used the E-M5 with wide rngefinder lenses.
