Samsung NX body + Minolta SR/MD/MC lens
COMPATIBLE MF MA
Conversion is entirely possible.
The Minolta SR/MC/MC is an SLR system, which leaves enough spare space to mount it on an NX mirrorless body. The adapter ring consists of two parts: the SR/MD/MC bayonet lock and release lug, fixed with bolts on the black ring.

Keep in mind that using a fullframe SR/MD/MC lens will get you a crop factor of 1.6*, because of the APS-C size sensor of the NX body, you'll get a pretty high focal length multiplier (you'll get a smaller image frame). Find out more about focal length in this article if you're interested.The Minolta interchangeable lens SLR system's lock is officially called SR (that's the name of its bayonet lock). The original version has been manufactured between 1958-1967, and the frames they were manufactured for didn't support either TTL photometry or automatic modes. The original version of the SR, the MC was released in 1966 was the first to support TTL photometry (the lock is still an SR!). The second version named MD was released in 1977 (this version was able to provide feedback on the lowest aperture setting. The bayonet lock is still an SR, thus all three lenses have basically the same fixture type (they had different features only on their originally intended cameras). Converting them to digital cameras the SR/MD/MC markings mean no difference and are fully compatible. Although the Samsung company hasn't announced it officially yet, there were no new bodies or lenses released for the NX system since February 2015. The company also withdrew it from its major markets. This makes the future of the NX unclear, and since there were no newer series released, the system is becoming increasingly rare.
