I use the Panasonic Adapter. I think it was about $20 on Amazon. I think the others work fine too. don't be disappointed when the lenses focus much slower. The high speed lenses are lucky to focus at all.

Thanks, do you know if you use Manual Focus with any lens do you get focus confirmation?

No, not with Panasonic DMW-MA1 at least. When turning the focus ring, 4/3 Lenses with fly-by-wire manual focus can have the focus area magnification automatically activated on Olympus m4/3 bodies but confirmation after that is only done by the eye!
