Olympus (of course) used their own system for the FTL, with a fixed pin in
a different location:


Since it is fixed on the diaphragm ring, using a m42 adapter with a thicker
ring (surface) doesn't work: the lens can't screw in completely and the
diaphragm ring is stuck.

I will test that later, with the 50/1.8, 135/3.5 and 200/4
