Hey there. I've tried 2 takumar lenses on the m4/3 Panasonic GF1: a 35mm and a 135mm lens. The 35mm works pretty well and is kind of fun. You need to make sure you change the aperture switch on the lens (is that what it's called?) from Auto to Manual - this will disable the aperture pin.

the 135mm is shaky since it's such a long focal length (270mm with the focal length multiplier), which makes it hard to manually focus.

Other than that, the lenses work fine..

Is anyone here using their Pentax glass on a micro 4/3 (Oly or Pany) ? Curious about how pleased you are with this set-up. I know this may belong in the Micro forum but I am intereseted in a Pentaxian opinion. Thanks, Steve
