M42 screw mount adaptor
Jan 12, 2013

I have gone searching through the forum here and I don't think I found the answer to the question:

What adaptor would most likely be the best fit to use M42 lense to m4/3 body AND still allow the aperture to be used?

I have had come into my possession a Praktica MTL3 (which feels nicer to use than the Canon AE1 which I really loved) with 3 lenses - Focal 2.8 28mm, Focal 2.8 135mm and Zeis Jena 1.8 50mm.

From what I have read, the mount system invoved is a M42 screw thread and since each of the lenses has it's own aperture control, I would like to be able to use that control and this is the reason for the question about adaptor.

The camera it will be going onto is the G3 (I would LOVE the G5, but wishes.... fishes...
