    My favorite piece of old Pentax glass, screw mounts can be a great deal. Oddly I can't get the darn thing to screw on without it ending upside down. :confused:
    Not a huge problem though

    It depends on adapter. Some adapter can be adjusted, just loosen the tiny screws holding the inner ring close to the lens, rotate the inner ring, then tighten.

    Brian beat me to it. I've also done this (repositioning the inner ring). Works a treat, and makes handling more convenient :smile:

    You got some excellent shots! Lots of folks still using the E-PL1. I sold mine after buying an E-P1, just liked the controls better. Eventually bought an E-PL2 to go with my E-P3 as a backup. I still prefer the two control wheels of the E-P1/3 but I've come to appreciate the E-PL's as well.
