question regarding 50 - 55 mm test

I've just received an adapter for M42 lenses to m4/3 and i tested briefly my 3 Takumars and a Planar on the 50 - 55 mm range.
I wanted to ask if i can share the pictures here, since they are not shot on a Pentax body but on my Olympus EP-1.

thank you!

I'd say yes--this is the lens forum, so anything regarding Pentax lenses (or lenses that can fit on a Pentax, like an M42 Planar) can go here.

Sure thing! We don't place any restritions on camera brand outside of our events.

thank you! i will do it tomorrow; today i had just the time to make a quick one, and with no great light; but I was amazed by the tight results between this four:

C/Y Planar T* 1:1.4/50
Super Takumar 1:1.4/50 I type
SMC Takumar 1:1.4/50
SMC Takumar 1:1.8/55

and from the fact the Planar has actually a different focal length than the two Takumars 50mm; possibly because of the different adapter?
