    Hi everyone,

    From what I've been reading on the internet it seems that the NX10 can't use Leica M glass,
    I read this article earlier:

    and it seems its not possible (maybe even with an adaptor) due to the construction of the NX10's mount and insides.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    If it is possible, you can bet that adapters will pop up on fleabay pretty fast.

    If it isn't possible . . . well, um, how about Robot, Foca, or Opema lenses?

    Well, that backs up what I've read elsewhere: it cannot take M-Mount lenses. I'm surprised that there is not an LTM adapter, seems easier. I suspect the throat of the camera is too narrow.
