4/3 lens query

Forgive my ignorance but........

If I got hold of a 4/3 lens, would I need an adapter like an MMF-3 to fit it to the EM1 Mk 2?

There are far cheaper MMF-3 lookalikes available, though maybe not as rigid a connection as MMF-3. If it's a heavy long lens like 50-200 then MMF-3 is best.

And the 50-200 being weather sealed, then it is best to also use the weather sealed (splash proof) MMF-3 adapter as well.
