    New micro 4/3 lenses on NEX?

    I've been wondering if anyone ever tried one of these lenses on a NEX camera:

    - SLR Magic 12mm f1.6
    - Nokton 17.5mm f/0.95

    I've seen some micro 4/3 to e-mount adapters on ebay but I've never payed any attention to them since all dedicated micro 4/3 don't have a focus ring or iris ring. But this is not the case with these 2 lenses.

    the distance for infinite is smaller on mft,

    Through my Lens: Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 for Sony NEX E-Mount

    check this out

    lens will need modding to focus infinite, plus massive vignetting issues.

    Mazor, this was very helpful. For my personal type of photography the results of adapting these lenses wouldn´t work out. It´s this type of lens that keeps making me want to go back to micro 4/3...but then I look at the IQ I get with that marvelous NEX sensor and my head goes into a continuous loop.

    No problems.

    I'll not buy Samyang 8mm/2.8 because Samyang 8mm/3.5 fits all my cameras. (Canon, m4/3, NEX, NX)

    But if someone has no ultrawide - Samyang is excellent, especially for low price.
    Hmmm ... Samyang 8mm/2.8/NEX is $100 more expensive than same for m4/3 or regular Samyang 8mm/3.5

    advantage of the samyang 8mm for nex or the samyang 8mm that fits all cameras is that you don't have to remove the hood to stop vignetting

    Yes, Samyang 8mm/3.5 is a very good lens, size doesn't matter.
    My 8mm has Canon mount - with adapters also for m4/3, NEX, NX
