I do not use Canon but,

with Pentax lenses with AF "by wire" ( not mechanical) you can not focus them via dumb adapter , the lens needs power to focus.

Your pancake looks like it is "by wire" type.

Yes, the lens is fly by wire.

so, even to use manual focus, the mens needs power ! I did not know about it.  Too bad i cant use it in m4/3. Cheers.
