    New Novoflex adapters for Samsung NX

    In the thread on new lenses for the Samsung NX, I wrote:
    Well, I'm supposed to receive an email from B&H as soon [the Samsung NX is] in stock but now I think I'll wait until there are adapters for Pen F, Rokkor MC/MD, and Hexanon AR lenses available.
    Now, according to DPreview, Novoflex has announced nine new adapters for the Samsung NX:

    * Nikon F
    * Canon FD
    * Minolta MD
    * Minolta/Sony Alpha
    * Leica R
    * Pentax K
    * Olympus OM
    * M42
    * T2

    Nothing on price or availability but it shouldn't be too long before the Chinese manufacturers announce their NX adapters. (And I bet Rong Jin will offer Pen F and Hexanon models too.)

    We have firmware updates for the mythical lenses, adapters for other system lenses...where is the camera?

    Vivek, your guess is as good as mine!

    While we're waiting, here's a question you can probably answer. The flange focal distances for the Samsung NX and Olympus Pen F are 25.5 mm and 28.95 mm respectively. Is 3.45 mm enough room for an adapter?

    That (3.45mm) is really pushing it Jonathon. However, one has to look at the NX mount (the diameter in particular) before giving the final verdict.

    Note Leica M is not on the Novoflex list (27.95mm flange distance)

    Well, one can always change the camera mount.

    I am serious about getting a NX body (if such thing ever becomes available for a cash purchase ) to use my Olympus pen F lenses.

    I will change the mount if I have to.

    Hmm, perhaps I should start looking for another set of Pen F extension tubes (or an ugly Pen F body).

    Thank you for this most generous offer.

    So I'd need two NX bodies: one for the Pen F lenses; the other for the Rokkor, Hexanon, and (possibly) Samsung lenses.
