hi All --- well not very 'Pentaxically Active' for a while as I have been given an Olympus E-500 4/3rds Digital with 2 Oympus Zoom lenses so have been playing -- HOWEVER -- I have treated myself to a M42 to 4/3rds Adapter from SRB Photographic for just over £20 Quids inc Postage and TAX ON POSTAGE !! It works -- I can use my M42 lenses on 'AV' exposure mode or 'M' and 'Manual Focus' set in menu. I will not use ALL the M42 lenses as the Olympus Zooms cover most but very useful for my 50mm f4 SMC Macro- Takumar and 50mm f1.4 SMC Takumar so I get an f1.4 aperture and the Russian Jupiter 85mm f2 lens which was a £1 bargain at my Club's annual auction. I show you some snaps ----
