    Samsung NX10 won't work with c-mounts

    I think the registration distance makes this an impossibility. Though rangefinder lenses should work.

    Appears that it doesn't work with M lens either... not sure if LTM works

    The larger sensor would not work with most c-mounts even if the flange distance allowed it.

    Kind of rough, it will be the least compatible of any digital interchangeable lens camera, at least initially, until some DSLR adapters come out.

    That takes most of the fun out for me right from the beginning... I am waiting for the GH2 with a new turbo sensor

    I'm just looking for a few good native primes for the NX10. The 30mm is supposed to be very good but doesn't seem to be available in the U.S. yet.

    This is hardly a surprise. People like us represent a tiny, little part of the market, and Samsung will probably rather make a profit from selling their own lenses than have a bunch of customers shooting with strange old things they find in the fle markets.

    When Nikon launches an EVIL camera, they'll probably make sure it won't meter with Nikkor (or other) lenses older than three and a half weeks. The D90 and lesser cameras don't meter with Nikkor manual focus lenses, while any Olympus, Panasonic or Canon camera will, go figure).

    If this is true this is a deal breaker for me.

    Sony will launch theirs and they will meter with anything.
