Hi, I'm new to this forum. I have an Oly E-Pl1 and have ordered an adapter from Fotodiox to use my (only) Pentax K mount lens ( a Promaster 28 - 80 )
on the Oly.

Since the adapter will come in contact with the contacts on the camera body, is there a chance that this will short some circuit out in the camera body and do damage?

I see a lot of people using adapters to mount legacy lenses but have never heard of this happening.

Am I worried over nothing?

thanks

Hi,
Yes, you are worrying about nothing, the adapter will not come into contact with the electrical contacts in the body of your camera.

The only lenses that give rise for concern are some of the Leica collapsible type which might come into contact with the sensor, people who use them tend to place some form of restrictor on the lens barrel to stop them collapsing.

Go ahead and enjoy your adapted lenses, there is nothing to be concerned about.
