images: legacy lenses on the Fuji X-Pro and X-E cameras

Since there´s an awful lot of talk of which CSC cameras are best suited for mounting this and that of legacy lenses, I thought we would dedicate a thread for pictures shot with lenses mounted via one or other adapter, on the Fuji X-series interchangeable lens cameras. At current X-Pro1 and X-E1, but also future models yet to come.

Please state camera, lens and adapter for each post/picture. Comments and discussions welcome.

X-E1, VC Ultron 28/f1.9, Fuji M-adapter. 1/30s handheld, 200-640 ISO, @f4.

Ah, I like these two.

I will soon receive a Canon FD to XF adapter, so I will be able to contribute, if the set-up works properly.

Thank you. I took another the morning after, and made a triptych. All three shots taken within a span of less than 25 hours.

Ezzie, this triptych is spectacular! The single images are, but the combination works great.

Thank you both. All hand held. I set the camera to auto ISO aperture priority, took a reading and then set it to manual and a shutter speed of 1/125s, lower than that and the quality of the panoramas suffer, at least with a 75mm equiv lens as here.

I also made a point of moving slightly to one side for each shot so the trees in the foreground would move to the left successively, the background more or less untouched perspective wise. Worked out well.

It seems not many people are using Fuji for adapted lenses? I would love to see more, especially with Zeiss glass.

I would want to, but I will have to wait for my adapter to arrive. In about 40 days, or the time it takes for shipments from China to trickle down south.

Big Red Ball, X-E1, Zuiko 28/3.5, 1/90 @ f8, 200 ISO



Charleston Parlor, X-E1, Vivitar 17/3.5 (even though it says "28mm" in EXIF; forgot to reset adaptor I.D.) 1/30 @ f8, 3200 ISO

I'm favorably impressed with the Vivitar 17mm. Not terrible barrel distortion and pretty faithful color rendition.

These are hand-held camera jpgs with some minor curve adjustment and unsharp mask. The film simulation was "Vivid", and -1 for highlight tone, shadow tone, and noise reduction. I'm still getting used to manually focusing with the EVF. The 10x magnification helps, but 5x would be better.

larry, when you're in magnify/focus assist mode, just turn the thumbwheel a little (i forget which direction) and you toggle between 3x and 10x.

Thanks, Adam! Great tip! 3x will be just right, as 10x and my old, shaky hands don't get along. I'm still wading through the manual but everyone has been very gracious with their helpful hints.

X-E1 with the Fuji-M adapter and the VC Ultron 28mm f1.9. Vignetting added, not an attribute of the lens (at f5.6 at least).

I am interested in pics with these lenses
I dont know if it is worth it to buy the Kipon adapter or wait until the 56mm lens comes out

This is amazing. Glad there are a few folks venturing to legacy lenses.

I'm excited to receive my X-E1! I didn't have enough flow to grab a fuji lens, but I did have enough to grab a few adapters. Nikon-G, Leica-M, C-mount. I've been using rangefinders for years and the X-E1 just convinced me to go with it. I have a 1957 J-8, 1953 canon 50mm 1.8, 90mm leitz.

Focus--how is everyone holding up with focus? Realize there's no peaking, besides magnification, and hyper focal, what else is there?

Hi All,
I think this is a very interesting article regarding the use of legacy Leica lenses both M and Ltm on the X-E1 using the Fuji M adapter and might be of interest to other Forum members who have yet to purchase a digital camera on which to use their lenses without having to win the Lottery or break the bank.
See:-

Thanks to everyone on the posts. Based on these results I just ordered a Rayqual Nikon F adapter so I can pull out some of my old Nikkors from the back of the cabinet. I'm thinking my favorite old AiS 50/1.8 will make a nice portrait lens, at least until the 56 comes out. Good work, guys!

For street I find manual lenses a boon. Yes the AF of the X-lenses are not that bad, but they still can't beat a preset lens justing waiting to pounce.

Though not the most in your face street action photographer (in Norway that is difficult as you need any and all indentifiable subjects to agree to being publicised on internet or elsewhere - in effect a model release), I like setting up shots like the one above and this one here. An MF lens is certainly no drawback:

Again the Pentacon 30 f3.5
