SMGJohn Posted August 10, 2016 Share Posted August 10, 2016 It is quite a hefty price, but if I can use my vintage Soviet lenses on my NX1, yes baby, worth it for me. I have a bunch but I cannot use them because of the crop factor, they are quite soft when you crop. Originally bought for the Sony A7s which turned out to be utterly junk, only good thing about that camera was the sensitivity, no idea why anyone even likes it or gave it such a good review. If the smart adapter ever sees light, we can finally use cheaper lenses for NX1, I always wanted a really wide zoom one with 2.8 aperture, but there are none for the Samsung NX1, I have to buy 3 Lenses! Just to get those winder angles than 16mm, ridicules! Even GH4 has a super wide zoom. But thanks to Lucabutera, I can invest in more vintage lenses and even if my Samsung NX1 fails one day, I can just buy a much better camera if that hopefully exists in the foreseeable future and still use my lenses! Profit! Old lenses are really shit with crop factor because they are not as sharp and you always loose that delicious wider range they have, Soviet lenses have really funny distortions which also gets lost when you have a crop. But, thanks to Lucabutera, I can enjoy using them now, definitely picking this one up with my Norwegian OIL money. lucabutera, Kisaha, cisco150 and 2 others 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
