Hi all, am new here. :angel:

Just got a Samsung NX11 and looking for a reasonable general purpose lens. Came across on this Tamron 18-270 but not sure can fit? If does, what type of lens mount can be used to match it?

Appreciate any kind advice from all the sifus/masters/experts etc.. :)

Samsung has it's own mount system (dpreview.com states 'Samsung NX mount'), Tamron currently only supports the major DSLR mount systems (Canon, Nikon, Sony). You can check the details at www.tamron.com. That's the point where it becomes clear: you don't buy a camera, you buy an equipment system.

Hi Octarine, tks for the reply. Understand Tamron does not support NX series. So I was wondering if the lens mount adapter will help.

Came across "red dot photo" website on the mounting adapter (sorry, cannot provide link post)

Does that mean I can use the adapters (Canon EF/Nikon F/Sony lens mount adapter) to mount the Tamron lens on my NX?

BTW, the Tamron has a model for sony w/o the VC feature (since Sony cam has VC inbuilt, if I not wrong). Thus, it wont be quite useful on other cam brand since it does not have VC feature too?

I had a look at the website and I'm not sure what this adapter can do. The remark "Manual Focus" already points out a limitation: your Samsung cannot manage the focus system of the Canon lens. Manual focus is not an issue for landscape or other situations where you have the time. You could also work with pre-focus for other situations. But then: if focus is not supported, what about aperture? Canon lenses get the aperture signal from the body, they don't have any aperture ring. Nikon lenses still have this ring (except G series), though. This could be a safe option.
Best you take your cam, a Canon lens and check the adapter in the shop.

Canon EF and EFS lenses not suitable cos there've no aperture on the lens.
Better lenses for use will be Nikon F mount with aperture rings and all the old 35mm manual lenses with an appropriate adapter.
Does you cam come with live view; easier to focus manually with live view. Also the manual lenses may be cheaper too.

Hi to Octarine and shierwin, tks for the great insight! very useful info! dint realise on those aperture thingy for diff brands of lens. Really have little knowledge on this and great to learn from you guys! :)

you mean no aperture control ring on the lens. the aperture is within the lens. how the aperture is controlled is via an a lever on the lens that is manipulated by the camera body (for the Sony Alpha at least). for other camera brands i'm not too sure.

lol.. i almost fell to the floor when i saw that canon lenses don't have apertures

On Canon EF and EF-S lenses the aperture is set electronically. There is no mechanical connection (lever or similar) between body and lens.

then Nikon bro? how's it set? mechanical or electronic?
Nikon mount has both options, electronic or mechanical. Older lenses (those with aperture ring) have aperture lever, newer (G series, no aperture ring) only have electronic coupling.
