I believe that RoelHendrickx indicated that the combination worked with the OMD, so I see no reason it would not work with the new camera. If they say 100% compatibility that implies that the EC14 and EC20 should work. Of course it depends on how well the focus works with FT lenses.

I should rephrase this--Olympus does not recommend stacking adapters.

EC-14 and EC-20 are an integral part of the 4/3 lens system, and hardly a rarity with users.
If Olympus won't support them or won't recommend their use then this will contradict "full support for 4/3 lenses".
Stacked adapters will  mean the rotational 'jiggle' will be doubled. I wish there was a locking mechanism to screw an  EC down tight once it clicks into place
