    Hi,I bought this PK to m4/3 adapter for my E-P1 from China,but i dont know if i'm putting it on properly.When i line up the red dots on both,the lens turns just a little then sticks.I'm assuming the pin on the adapter has to click into the small locking hole in the Pentax lens mount(red line in pic 2)It wont click into place, it's too far from the locking hole.Does anyone else use this same adapter?

    This is as far as the lens will turn!

    You might take a look at this thread (which has too do with an overly loose adapter) and apply its suggestions in reverse.

    I have a PK-to-:43: adapter, but haven't experienced this particular issue you are describing. Mine doesn't appear to be from the same manufacturer as yours -- I believe mine might be a Fotasy.
