Micro fourthirds has flange distance of 20mm. Any lens with registration >20mm can be mounted on m4/3 body under the following conditions:

1. Need for a adapter
2. Manual focus only
3. An aperture ring on the lens

To add to Shierwin post, some of the Olympus native 4/3 mount DSLR lens can be mounted on Olympus m4/3 camera via an adapter and still retain its autofocus capability.

Actually, Canon cameras can mount Nikon lenses with an adapter. Also MF only, and need aperture ring to change aperture.

Micro four thirds cameras all have the same mount, so they can use lenses from any brand, as long as they are in m4/3 mount. Same for DSLR cameras actually.

Nonsense. Unless you are referring to the use of an adapter, it just has to have the same mount. That's why you can buy Sigma, Tamron, Tokina lenses even if you have a Canon, Nikon, Sony DSLR.
