    Hi,
    Does anyone knows this lens and used it? I have a chance to get it for 80$, worth it? Also, do I need any adaptor for the GH2?

    Thanks

    You would definitely need an adapter, as it is a Samsung NX mount lens, not a :43: one. I'm not sure if such an adapter exists, though, since the flange is only 5.5mm further from the sensor on the NX than on the :43: system.

    5.5mm is enough, it is safe to say that an adaper can be made if the difference of the two mounts is greater than 2mm. Now it is doable but i am not sure that it is a popular request hence not sure if it will be manufactured in china. You may have noticed that some adapters are not available or available at a higher price it is simply due to the fact that they are not popular. You can always try to make your own , but this will involve great cost. Unfortunately at the moment I have not found any adapter for NX lenses on M4/3.

    yes, i haven't seen an adaptor as well. Oh well... it seemed like a nice lens for 80$...

    Aren't the NX lenses focus by wire also (ie would need power connections to be able to even manually focus)?

    That is maybe why there is no adapters :p
