Digital Pen mount and Pen FT mount

Hi, was curious if the Digital Pen-F mount is the same as the original film Pen F/FT/FV mount? Like if it can physically mount and old Pen F/FT/FV lens on the Digital Pen?

I dont have the Digital Pen, however I am curious if the physical mount is compatible with the old lenses (of course I do not expect old lens to have electronic connections)

many thanks for input.

mounts are different, but simple and cheap adapters are readily available, e.g see: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from...apter&_sacat=0

They are very similar.
In the early days of micro 4/3 some people used Pen-F macro rings to mount
Pentax 110 SLR lenses onto M4/3 bodies.
