Interesting, I have been looking at cameras like this since they do present the option of adapting so many different lenses, even totally obsolete mounts like the pre-AF Minolta.

with the easy compatibility with the mirrorless systems, those samyang lenses make alot more sense for the canon system. makes it quite versatile.

how sharp is the 85 wide open? i have not really read a lot of reviews on it.

I have considered an EVIL camera (Electronic Viewfinder, Interchangeable Lenses) for that very reason. I have access to several Minolta MF lenses, due to their unusually short focal plane they cannot be adapted to any other DSLR, so these new mirror-less cameras are the only ones that can adapt to these lenses without a corrective lens for infinity focus. I may eventually invest in one of these models, with the Samsung being one possibility.

A (small) disadvantage of NX10 is focusing with manual lenses. You can only magnify display/viewer 2x - Lumix Gxx 5x/10x, NEX 7x/14x ... with last two very exactly.

that would be a disadvantage shooting macro which i do regularly use a mf lens on my epl1 for. but i think for normal shooting it would be less of a disadvantage, but still is one. i am surprise they have not address that in the newest firmware, since it is prevalent on their competitors models.

I guess the Sony is probably the most capable, and the latest firmware upgrade has cured some of its interface woes. A Pentax lens adapter would make for an interesting option since older manual lenses would work well with it.
