With only 7.5mm flange difference, Samsung 30mm f/2 pancake and NEX would be nice and compact combo.

But I couldn't find this mount adapter anywhere.

Cheers,

Unfortunately a smart adapter in order to make that tiny sammy change it's aperture and focus on the nex camera s is quite impossible to make.

But a dummy adapter shouldn't be that difficult to make, right?

Because I had a Samyang Fishy 8mm f/2.8 for my Samsung NX and because I also received an Sony a6000 i decided to try to adapt the fisheye to my nex. A little bit of DIY and I actually made it! ( I used the lenscap of the Sony A6000). 
It's not perfect, but it focuses ffrom 3meters to infinity just fine. Test pics comings soon.
