Re: Leica M adapters for nx ? Maybe....

The problem is the M flange distance is only about 2mm more than the NX but any adapter has to have some thickness and 2mm is too small to lock a lens. The other problem is that the M mount is wider than the NX mount so you can't even build an adapter that can recess the lens into the Samsung. So the lens can never get close enough to the sensor to reach infinity focus. Unless of course you remove the Samsung mount or modify your M lens (which probably costs much more than the samsung so its easier to modify the samsung or buy a NEX)
