Re: MF adapter / Sunagor lens.

For OM to 4/3 DSLR, the official item is the MF-1 adapter. But there are plenty of Chinese clone items. I have several which I no longer use since I no longer have a 4/3 DSLR. You can have one for the cost of postage (large letter). PM me your address. I can't post until the weekend though.

It is a 'dumb' adapter ie just a mechanical connection. It is (or was) also possible to get 'chipped' adapters that kid the cameras AF system into thinking it has an AF lens fitted. You half-press the shutter and manually focus the lens. When the image is in focus, the camera beeps to confirm focus. They were quite useful but not always accurate. For macro, I think you would be better off with live view focusing.
