m4/3 adapter with ring to adjust aperture

Note if you have "G" lenses that don't have an aperture dial, and want to get a manual adapter (not the autofocus adapter I linked), make sure you get an adapter that has an aperture dial on it (usually they call them "Nikon G" adapters). Otherwise there is no way to adjust the aperture.

An article that explains it.

Here's an example from Metabones (you can see there is a dial on the adapter itself). Note there are many options that are much less expensive, this is just an example.

In 2012 I got a cheap Sony/Minolta A-mount/m4/3 adapter. I think about $10. The Sony/Minolta A-mount has no aperture ring. The m4/3 adapter I have though has a ring that you can turn that engages with the aperture lever inside the lens mount so that you can adjust the aperture. No markings or click stops to get to exact f-number values, but that is not particularly important.
