using Old Lenses via Adapter with Samsung NX1000
Aug 26, 2012

I have just purchased a Samsung NX1000 (got a deal I couldn't pass up).

There are lots of nice used lenses out there, especially 50mm f2, f1.6, f1.4 that would make a nice 75mm equivalent portrait lens or macro lens.

Is anyone able to tell me if it is possible to use the camera with such a lens mount?

I realize that you lose all automatic control. I tried to press the shutter with my kit lens off, and the camera refuses to do anything - just giving me an error message that no lens is attached. Since these adapters don't have a chip and no electrical contacts, I'm wondering it will just do that same thing, or if it will work.

Please share any experience or experimentation that you have with this. Thanks very much.
