Re: Massive News! Samsung Makes a major move

What if instead of an extension tube adaptor the new camera uses the K-mount directly but has a collapsable design so that it is compact when closed? The minox-35 was designed like that and this worked very well.

Well, no mention if they have a similar adapter for K-mount lenses
like Oly and Panasonic have with their mFT system.

It is not important. The whole idea for such a system is
compactness. A K mount lens would need an extension tube and an
adapter to fit, which defeats the whole purpose of the compact
system. It would be like using K mount lenses on a Pentax 110
camera. Not a good fit.
