I can't believe it has been over three days since the anouncement and still everybody is just speculating about the mount and we have no real answer from Samsung. I mean, it's pretty obvious from their anouncement that they wanted to keep it a secret, but could someone at least ask them to get a "we wont tell" or something. As it is now its just too silent...

Well the whole thing looks like nothing but a mock up to me. The lenses on the camera have no discerable moarking at all, no focal lengths, no f-stop information, nothing.

what about the mount? it's not K so it doesn't really matter if we know now does it.

From what I've read, there are lots of people who would like to know if you will be able to fit K-mount lenses with an adaptor (like on MicroFourThirds) and if so, will there be any functional limitations doing so. If this is the case, it would be interesting to know if the compatibility is K-mount exclusive or if it will be possible to make adaptors fro other mounts as well.

Not that I plan on buying one soon, but it would be interesting to see what kind of strategy Samsung has and if they kept Pentax in the loop somehow?

I know, I know......shoot more, speculate less!

i doubt an adapter would work using anything except stop-down metering mode.
i find it highly unlikely that NX will have a mechanical aperture and af motor in the body, which defeats some of the purpose of starting new and fully electronic.

They said it will be a new mount, which fits an APS-C sensor.
The flange back will be about 20mm.

So far Samsung is nothing but a loud shouter.
For quite some time they announce great things to come.
But so far nothing at all.
I wouldn't hold my breath ...
