DA lens to 4/3 adapter?

I found there are some DA lens to Micro 4/3 adapter, but can NOT find anything about DA lens to 4/3 adapter, I have an old Olympus E1 and want to hook my DA pancake lens to it. Any one has found such an adapter? Thanks.

Does your DA Pancake have an aperture ring? If it doesn't, get used to shooting at f/22.

Novoflex seems to also make one, called "FT/PENT". Not cheap at nearly 120 euros, though.

I believe the Novoflex 4/3-K-adapters have an aperture mechanism of some sort. Don't know if there's one in a 4/3-K-adapter.
