    Is there an adapter which would allow Micro 4 3 lenses to be used on an M mount camera?
    Only asking because that might be really handy when /if the GXR M mount module comes out.

    I doubt it. The image circle will be too small, the flange distance too short, and the aperture and focus non-functional.

    Yeah, it wouldn't be useful, sorry.

    Oh well, I suppose they might come up with a m 4 3 module sometime.
