    My EPL2 just showed up, and I've already got adapters for M42 screwmount and Nikon G.

    What are some good lenses I should watch out for using that mount?

    Many of the Pentax M42 screwmount Super Takumar lenses are quite good, particularly the 50mm f1.4

    I have an SMC Takumar 50/1.4 that is pretty nice. Feels great to use. The 55/1.8 is nice as well.
  5. Various SuperTaks and the Helios 44M (58/2) as already mentioned, and to add something different an Industar 61 L/Z (55/2.8)

    The 50mm F1.8 pentacon works really well with M4/3's great bokeh!
