Hi, I'm thinking of getting a Samsung NX300M soon and have some questions about the lens.
I'm looking to buy the 50-200mm lens along with the kit lens for now. Wondering if other non-Samsung lens might be able to go with the NX300m? I am going to look for second hand lens when I'm in Japan in a few weeks and they hardly carry Samsung lens so I'm stuck.
I'll be shooting some fashion shows and concerts so I kinda need a longer than kit lens. But since the photos are for online publication, turns out I don't really need DSLR quality photos for work submission. That's why I'm looking at micro 4/3s. Really new to all these DSLRs/micro four thirds stuffs.
Would appreciate some help! Thank you!!

Er... Are you looking for m4/3 cameras or are you looking for Samsung mirrorless interchangeable lens camera? They are different thing.

The m4/3 cameras are those that are basically from Panasonic and Olympus with recent inclusion from Kodak and blackmagic. The Samsung camera are different, it had its own unique mount.

So if you want a lens to suit your Samsung NX300... then you need to find one with the Samsung (NX)mount do note that it now has the normal NX one and the NX mini one and at present I don't think there is any third party lens maker making lenses for Samsung, you can buy an adapter to mount other lenses to your Samsung though (one adapter for each lens mount though), but most probably you will lost the ability for AF and some automatic controls like aperture control.
