Micro 4/3 Olympus and Pentax lenses

Been reading that its possible with an adapter to use K mount lenses with the E-PL1 and E-PL2 (and other m4/3 as well). I've also read that on the Olympii, the AF is usable with K mount lenses.

Has anyone in this forum had any experience of doing this, or know anyone who has? Its just that I have been considering selling the K-5 but the limited lenses I have are something I am reluctant to let go of.

As far as I know there are no non-native lenses that AF. Even the Nokton is MF although it is a micro-43 mount. Available adapters have no electronics. There were some adapters with a micro-chip that gave focus confirmation of manual focus but they seem to have gone off the radar.

Not AF, but you can get K-mount adapters with aperture rings to stop down the lens 5 or 6 stops from wide open.
