Due to flange focal distance difference between your GH1 and the A-mount, you....(more)

may find more adapters available for the GH1 than the A57. Pentax screwmount (your Takumars) should be ok with non and focus confirm adapters available and cheaper too. Tough to find adapter on the Konica Hexanon and if available, probably with a glass element. On your Vivitars, depending the actual mount (like if TX, adapters are available). I played a lot with MF lenses about two years ago but I haven't looked into new adapters lately except for my Mamiya 645 to A-mount which is cheaper now (~$45 compared to $99 or more two years ago).I am considering going to NEX (with focus peaking) since adapters are now numerous.
