would i need special adaptors to use the non samsung lenses?

yup. and no AF. but a world of great glass is cheap and out there.

An adapter is about $22 on ebay. And you need a different adapter for each lens mount type. The adapters will have a thickness so as to bring the legacy lens at the right distance from flange to sensor that it was optimized for.

As Paul says, lots of glass out there, and since you may be shopping on ebay, make sure you ask the seller: any fungus/mold, any haze, any scratches, any bubbles or delamination? I've noticed that most sellers leave much, or some, of this information out of their listings. We like to think out of carelessness, but just to protect yourself in the event of a paypal claim, make sure you check first, and ask if the info is missing.
