Is there a film camera I can use my micro four third lenses on?

    Mounting native µ4/3 lenses on other cameras you'll loose aperture & focus control (these are both electronic) so there's very little incentive.
    It would be possible to use them for macro work, which would help with both the coverage issue & the lack of space behind the lens.
    If you don't mind hacking the front of the camera most cine cameras could be made to work (most use c-mount lenses which have slightly shorter rear flange distances than µ4/3) again seems like a lot of work for no real gain.

    If you really try you could but it's certainly not worth it. Your expensive M4/3 lenses won't work as well as el cheapo lenses that are designed for the camera.
