My mom gave me my dad's Praktrica 35mm Camera and Lenses.

Does anyone know of a Pentacon Lens to 4/3rd Adapter?

I held the 50mm / f1.8 lens up to my E-500 and the it looked nice. But kind of hard to shoot holding the camera and lens together and trying to take a pic. LOL

Pic Attached of trying. :-)

These lenses should either be m42 theread mount or standard pentax K mount depending on the age of the camera.

My first camera was a Praktica thread mount nice little camera.

Yea, I did some searching and found that it's M42 mount. Will see what I can find for adapters now.

Thanks, tried to find the answer before I posted the question, but could not find it.
