Using limited lenses on micro 4/3

Is it worth it to buy an adapter to use Pentax limited lenses on a micro 4/3 camera.

Sure, an adapter is only around $20.00 and Pentax lenses are great. Get a K mount and an M42 adapter.
I share lenses with my Kx and E-M5, the M4/3 gives me a bit more reach with the long ones.

You'll need the spendier adapter so you can choose your aperture - otherwise it's a good way to go. I use them on my Q so who am I to complain?
