Again, I must correct what are simple factual errors.

The basic mirrorless lens mount adapters do not require "full manual operation" of the camera. There is no need for stop down metering. There is no need for the green button kludge. Metering is automatic and precise.
Robin, you're correct, and I should have said that. Using a manual lens on the Pen is pretty easy from a metering standpoint. However, the adapters are a necessary evil in my book. That's why I chose the K-01 because now all my autofocus Pentax lenses work as intended.

I don't think they were intended to focus so slow.
