Here is the Google translation of the Olympus Jap website, it specifies a adapter that can be used for older 4/3 ports but no mention of the newer PEN housing ports.

Also seems a bit short sighted to change the port mount when after market ports for the PEN housing already cover several of the better lenses you reviewed.

I am not sure if this is correct. According to the housing map (http://www.olympus.c...stem_ptep08.pdf) the PPO-EP01 port being offered is the same port used on the PT-EP01 (E-PL1) housing, it is just removed from the housing ( :) ) like they would not admit too.

There is an adapter being offered that allows 4/3 ports to be used as well. Hopefully Alex might be able to shed some light on this....
