This is not correct. Besides Sigma, there is an M43 AF lens from Tamron (14-150mm F/3.5-5.8 Di III VC) and an MF mirror lens from Tokina (Reflex 300mm F6.3 MF Macro). Then there are the M43 exclusive high aperture MF primes from Voigtlander.

There are lists of all non-adapted lenses on my website:
