EM1 and Canon EF lens via adaptor any good?

I have an EM1 mark 1 with M4/3 lenses and a Canon 5d mk3 and a range of Canon lenses. I am looking to increase the focal range available to me for the EM1 for occasional use only. I have looked at the available telephoto zoom M4/3 lenses but I do not think that anything within my budget will be good enough.

I am now wondering if I would get good results by connecting my Canon 70-300L lens to the EM1 body vi an adaptor. There seem to be a range of these available from cheap and cheerful to more sophisticated. I am considering an adaptor which will offer AF and aperture control. There are a few on Amazon for around 116 which would seem to fit the bill.

Has anyone tried this combination or a similar combination and if so how successful was it?

Any comments/advice would be appreciated.
