Re: EM1 and Canon EF lens via adaptor any good?

I don't have any experience of this, but I'm pretty sure we have a few people here who do use Canon lenses on an E-M1. I don't know anything about adapters that provide full control, but another possibility might be the Metabones adapters. As I understand it, they contain optical elements and will take a 35mm full frame format lens and act as a reverse teleconverter - so for example a 200mm f/4 full-frame lens would become 100mm, which gives an angle of view on 4/3 equivalent to 200mm on full frame. It would also give you two extra stops so you would have a 100mm f/2, which could be rather nice. Of course, this may not be what you want if you are looking for extra length.
