    I have a Chinon CM-5 with a 50MM 1.9 on it. This was a very sharp lens in the film days. I want to try it on my EPL1, but I'm not sure which adapter to use. If you use this lens which adapter are you useing and what are your thought on the lens when used with a microfour thirds camera.

    I believe Chinon's used a Pentax K-mount. Does it look like this (an arbitrary image from a Google search).

    Harry, yes that looks like the mount for my lens. Thanks for the help.
