Yes, that's what Fotodiox says about theirs. I was checking because I was going to suggest it as a good, low cost alternative (Fotodiox adapters for legacy lenses are well regarded) but not a good idea if it forces you into stop-down metering with a lens that doesn't really require it.

Thank you, that has answered a big question for me. I was looking at the 4/3 w/a lenses which seem cheaper then the m4/3 equivalent. Following these replies I realise I will need to budget for an original Olympus or Panasonic adaptor as well

Once again

thank you to all who replied
