Hello Ammadoux
Olympus and Panasonic share mounts, for both 4/3 and micro4/3 systems.
Pentax and Samsung share a different mount - the K mount.

I don't know much about Leica, as they make quite different kinds of camera.

Re: Sigma lenses
They're specified to each individual mount on the company's website.
For Oly/Panasonic you'll be looking for "4/3 mount"
For Pentax/Samsung you'll be looking for "Pentax K mount".
Again the two mounts are very different, therefore not compatible.

Probably a simple confusion. They are different.
