Micro 4/3 body + Contax G lens

COMPATIBLE MF MA

Fortunately the flange focal depth allows conversion.

The flange focal depth of the Contax G system is 29mm, significantly more than that of the M4/3, which means it's an easy conversion. The adapter ring consists of two parts most of the time: the G bayonet lock and the adapter's housing itself.

Keep in mind that using a fullframe G lens will get you a crop factor of 2*, because of the tiny sensor of the M4/3 body, you'll get a pretty high focal length multiplier (you'll get a smaller image frame). Find out more about focal length in this article if you're interested.

Terminology

In terms of compatibility, we distinguish four separate categories:

COMPATIBLE
PARTIALLY COMPATIBLE
COMPATIBLE IN THEORY
NOT COMPATIBLE
This means that you'll be able to apply the lens on the camera in question with a proper adapter, and full focus range will be available with it (often with aperture control too). If AF is supported, you'll see it in the description.
This means that due to the flange focal depth or other factor this conversion would be normally unfeasible, but with some compromises (e.g. using a speedbooster adapter) can be made possible.
This means that the flange focal depth should make mounting and using inifinty focus possible, but for some reason there are no adapter rings available or other factors make it unviable.
This means that you won't be able to mount your lens due to mechanical incompatibility or the difference in flange focal depth doesn't make inifinity focus possible. Although numerous lenses can be mounted on cameras without infinity focus, but this cannot be considered actual compatibility.

Additional information for compatible variations:

manual focus (on the lens, with its own control ring)
autofocus available (AF controlled by the camera body)
manual aperture control (on the lens, with its own control ring)
automatic aperture control (controlled by the camera body)
speedbooster (focal reducer) adapters are available
macro (variable length) adapters are available
tilt-shift (or other flexible) adapters can be used
