Adapt Pentax 400mm to OM-D E-M5?

I've listed my Pentax 400mm K mount in the Marketplace and a new member asked the question below:

Anyone know if this lens will fit (due to its size) and operate on an OM-D E-M5 with proper adapter?

No reason it shouldn't, though it will look a bit ridiculous seeing how the lens will dwarf the body.

should work out well on a tripod. Did you buy an OM-D GD?

No. I have my Pentax 400mm listed for sale and a new member here is asking if he/she can adapt the 400mm to his/her OM-D...

It will work and fit with a K->m4/3 adapter.
