I wish the 16-50 f/2-2.8 would fit to a future full frame Samsung NX

will fit with adapter and crop mode. joke.

Comparing FFD around, a Canon/Nikon FF choose 44.00/46.50 mm. So when 2x crop factor go for 19.25 mm didn't surprised many. But when Sony 1.5x APS-C go with only 18.00 mm FFD, it was something really weird and causes many debating.

So when Samsung released 1.54x cf APS-C sensor camera, I had always think Samsung choose 25.50 mm FFD, it must be for some valid or future proof reason. I'm not sure how to do this math, but I wouldn't be surprise if Samsung release a FF camera with current NX mount. Perhaps with a little tweaking of the existing NX mount, it will just fit the pair of FF sensor + lens nicely.
