G1 and Olympus 4/3 lenses

Theres probably a thread about this somewhere on here, somewhere but I have started to use my panasonic G1 more and more but only with the 2 kit lenses the 14-45 and 45-200.
I have been considering buying either the Oly or Panny adaptor so I can use my 4/3rds lenses, 14-54 MK1, 70-300 and 35mm Macro with the G1.
Has anyone any experience or opinions, is it good thing or what?
What are the pitfalls etc?

Re: G1 and Olympus 4/3 lenses

I have extensive experience of using the 14-54 on the G1 I owned - very slow focussing. I moved to the Mk2 version and it was vastly improved - so much so that it is my main lens on my G2. The 70-300 focusses OK, but I can't comment on the 35mm. Have a look through my many posts (rants) on this topic.
