    Im looking to buy a samyang 8mm cine lens - fuji x mount. I have an a6000. Im unsure of weather there are any adapters available and if there would be anything limiting the use of this lens

    oh i see. thanks for the advice. so if the flange distance on the nex mount cameras is smaller than that of the fuji x cameras, does that mean that it wont focus to infinity if mounted on the nex camera?

    The flange distance on emount is larger than fuji x-mount but yes youll never get it to focus on infinity. In theory An adapter with optics in it could solve the problem but my guess is it would be more expensive than the lens itself. To add to confusion fuji had a slr mount with almost the same name.
