I have had exactly zero problems with either the M-P 240 or M-D 262. Zero. The Sony locked up about twice a week... Piece of crapola.
Yes, I've been down the adapted road as well. Did not enjoy the experience. Told myself the only way I'll use M lenses on digital is on a digital M. Plus, I strongly dislike EVFs and rear screens.
