Intriguing. A safer solution might be to reverse mount the lens using a 58mm-4/3 reversal adapter, and use some contacts similar to that used for the autofocus chips plus a ribbon cable again to connect to the pins on the other side of the lens. The nett effect would be a reversed lens + a short extension tube. Can anyone who reads Japanese confirm that the autofocus will work ? I'd have thought the algorithm would screw up. Aperture should work fine, though.

Does anyone know where to get those contacts used for the autofocus chips ? This wouldn't be too hard, actually, if you are willing to use the lens adapters
