    That is about 188 Euro's and 275.00 usd today. The Novoflex K will allow aperture control with DA lenses. http://www.dpreview.com/news/0909/09091101novoflex.asp

    OK, so how many can I ship you, LOL I am looking forward to putting some of my older Pentax and Nikon lenses on my G1, so I don't need the aperture control but I haven't got around to ordering any of the other less expensive adapters. cheers Bill

    I am thinking of cobbling one up for the old K/42 mounts, myself.

    I have no DA lenses and if I had any, I would use them on the new Pentax Kx which appears to be more versatile and cheaper than any m4/3rds camera.

    Hi Bill, thanks for the offer, but I only need a plain vanilla adapter for the old 100/4 macro lens.

    you could buy a 4/3 to micro 4/3 and a k to 4/3... that gives you the option to add other lenses and adaptors later

    That's a brilliant idea, actually. I hadn't considered it because I don't anticipate getting any 4/3 lenses (not 4/3) and I suspect it's a dead end system. But it's flange distance of ~39mm is probably one of the shortest of all SLR mounts. Which means I can then get cheap adapters at $20 or so to pretty much whichever SLR mount I want! Looks like the way to go!

    I can't see any obvious drawbacks to the plan, but I'd love to hear people's thoughts on this route.
