M42 screw lens to Micro 4/3 camera body adapter allows the attachment of old M42 (commonly called "Pentax screw thread") lenses onto Panasonic Lumix G and Olympus OM-D and PEN series MFT mount bodies.
This MFT body to M42 screw lens adaptor allows a photographer to mount a M42 screw lens to a Micro Four Thirds camera body by simply fitting the adaptor into the camera body.
Please Note: Although the lens will fit physically, other functions like autofocus which are dependent on communication between the camera body and the camera lens will no longer function using the lens adapters. You will need to manually focus and to set exposures manually or meter in aperture priority mode. Recommended for use with Pentax lenses with an aperture ring to enable control of aperture.
For most Panasonic Lumix G and Olympus series cameras you will need to select and set "Shoot without lens" to ENABLE / ON in the cameras menu to enable the camera to fire without recognising a lens. The Panasonic and Olympus cameras are capable of shooting in A or M modes and using manual focusing. To assist manual focusing some models also feature Focus Peaking, which can be switched on in the cameras menu if the camera supports this feature.
