Recently I found an article showing Angenieux 12-240mm adapted to be used on Canon 7D making it a 38mm-768mm lens on APC sensor or 24-480mm in 35mm.

Would this set-up work? Angenieux 12-120mm (cameflex) > M4/3 (adapter made by Hawk) > Doubler (teleconverter) > M4/3 to Canon EOS adapter > Canon 7D.

Does anyone make an adapter to put M4/3 lenses on Canon EOS? The other way around is common, but I've never seen that one.

Nope. You'd need to gut the mirror box out of the Canon to get close enough to the sensor/film plane to be in focus, otherwise any M4/3 lens you'd use would be in (extreme) macro mode.

True, for a mechanical adapter. The adapter could have optics also. Like FD->EOS adapters. You'd lose some light.

But I don't think any exist. Not really any reason to put M4/3 lenses on EOS.

No, not really any reason :) The image quality would suffer, and a M4/3 lens need an active mount to be able to communicate with the camera, aperture, focus, IS, lens corrections all need electronic communication to work.
