    I am thinking about getting a GF2 and a Pentax K adaptor so I can also use my old Pentax SMC-M lenses on it (50mm f1.7 & 135mm f3.5 plus a couple of others) Are there any issues I should be looking out for? Is there any risk of damaging the camera with any of these adaptors? Im also particularly concerned about making sure im able to focus to infinity with these lenses on the GF2

    I have seen this adaptor on Amazon UK for £16, anyone have any experience with it?

    You should be fine with adapting M series lenses - the adapter is literally just a metal tube... I haven't heard of infinity-focus problems with any of them.

    I use a Fotodiox PK-m43 adapter which is decent enough and cheap.
