The Takumar is a very nice lens if I recall. You'll need either a PK to M43 adaptor plus a M42 to K adaptor to afix the screw lens to the K bayonet mount, or a single M42 to M43 adaptor. The first option gives you the flexibility to use any Pentax (bayonnet or screw mount) manual lenses.

Or adapt both via EF-m4/3 if it is likely that more lenses will be acquired.

It may have yellowed over time. If it is the case lay it out in the strong sunshine for a while and it will go away. You may read that it is radioactive, but nothing to worry about. No worse than a glow in the dark wrist watch.

That's not the case for the 55/1.8 AFAIK. Some of the 50/1.4s were the radioactive ones.
