Yes you can do it by :
OM lens adapter + OM reverse ring (3rd party) + OM manual 50mm lens


cheers

That is a OM reverse macro and not 4/3 reverse macro.

I have the OM setup you mentioned and the result is like this.
Picture only resize, no cropping

A closeup of a 50 cents coin


The face of a watch

Yes I have.

Cut a hole in your camera body's cover. Glue a cheap clear filter with the male thread facing outwards onto that cover.

Sorry, I have no interest in shooting insects. With 10cm away from the insect, might be difficult. (Guess the 50-200mm with EX-25 will be better choice)
Do you mean like a close up on flowers?

For E-series lenses, you'll need to first freeze the aperture you want by pressing the 'preview DOF' button and then while holding it, disengage and take out the lens. Otherwise the lens' aperture is controlled electronically by the camera at the point of shutter release and there is no exterior dial to manually control the aperture.

For that matter, you can use lens of any make because it's just the filter thread.
