You might be able to lash something up, but, unless it's a fully manual lens, you may well have no control of the focussing or aperture … all in all, probably not worth the effort!

Thanks, the problem I have many samsung nx lenses.

Yes, and I'm sure many Samsung NX users are in the same position and would like to be able to use their lenses on other cameras. Unfortunately there's no simple solution.

It should be possible for an enterprising manufacturer to make smart adapters for NX lenses. A project was under way to create one that worked the other way around, for Canon EF lenses on NX cameras:

There is precedent for such unlikely-sounding adapters making it to production, such as the Monster Vectis-Sony model:

It might be possible to modify NX lenses to offer mechanical focusing (and maybe diaphragm) operation. Here's an AF-to-manual modification for a Fujinon lens, which like most NX ones is usually fully electronically controlled:

Another option would be to re-mount the lenses (primes easier than zooms) into manual barrels, like this:

It might even (just) be possible to cobvert NX lenses to Leica M-mount, in which case they could be used with auto focus using adapters like the Techart PRO and Megadap.

Perhaps there's a business opportunity here for someone...
