Oh, I see. Thanx! Never heard about this brand name. Looks pretty much solid and well build. Also price is more than Good. Hopefully it's not gonna give any focus shift for m-leses (known issue for cheap "noname" adapters). I'm using Voigtlander adapter - working without any problem, but kind expensive.

Some shots from Nikon 85f1.8 via speedbooster on Fuji XP1

40% crop


100% crop


Shot wide open (f1.8 becomes 1.2 on a speedbooster) converted to BW using SEP2


Pano crop - fountain in front of local library


From a walk around the local reservoir using the Nikon 24-85f2.8-4.. It is kind of nice having a zoom which is now a f2-2.8 due to the effects of the speed booster.

Pano crop shot at 24f5.6


@24 wide open f2


@85 macro mode 50% crop (don't remember the f stop)


@85f5.6 50% crop


@around 35f4 pano crop

Shot with new to me Summaron 35/3.5, X-E1. Here's the little beast:

http://www.rangefinderforum.com/rffg...7012.SEQ.0.jpg

And the photo:


I was commenting recently that the XF35/1.4 in particular is so good that there is not a lot to be gained by using modern Leica glass on the X-E1. But there is lots of fun to be had with lenses that have 'character' - hence the new Summaron. As you can see, lots of flare at the top owing to the bright sky.

But then the question is how to process the digital file to preserve the old school look - in the end I opted for fairly low contrast and very little 'clarity' adjustment, plus a bit of grain. Otherwise you just end up with another sharp contrasty image which could have come from any other lens...

Any thoughts about processing?

Cheers,
Kirk

Looks great Kirk! You've definitely retained the character of the lens.

Recently purchased a Helios 58mm just after the firmware update. I should have done this sooner!

I'm looking to add the Nikon 105 2.5 (non IS) to the list.

Check out images on Flickr made with the Nikon Series E 100/2.8... you might be able to save yourself some $$.

Not sure if this qualifies as a 'legacy' lens. It turns out a few of us have bought the Holga HL-N 60/8.0 for use on Fuji via a Nikon adapter. I finally got a chance to try it out.

This is not only a slow lens (fixed F8), it is also dim. I was shooting at ISO 1600 on a sunny day. Attached are OOC jpg's with Velvia simulation.

Lots of fun in a random sort of way...

So here is the 12-24f4 on the speedbooster. This shot was taken at between 12 and 15 setting. I would guess slightly over 13mm. Pano crop..

Gary, 12-24? What lens is that? Nice images above. I have to say that the modern lenses like the Nikkor 50/1.4 are producing images that seem almost too sharp... dazzling! Are you still liking using the Speed Booster? Does it feel a lot heavier than typical adapters? I'm still waiting for delivery of mine.

Gary, I just looked up the 12-24mm lens. I see that its a Nikon DX lens. Does it vignette a lot with the Speed Booster?

As u figured out the 12-24f4 afs dx from Nikon. It is slightly heavier then the Fuji m mount due to the built in optics as well as solid build. Yes.. I still like it Jamie.

Good luck w/ yours. Hope it works out for u.

Off 16th St WDC from this morning. Sometimes flare is a feature, not a bug!

I got my Kipon adapter today and dusted off one of the 60's era Nikon 55mmf3.5 lenses. I haven't used it in nearly 30 years so this was a real treat.
The adapter worked great. The weak link was my shooting flow of focus, aperture setting,composing and then pushing the go button.

Anybody out there using a Voigtlander 21/1.8 Ultron or a 35/1.2 v2 Nokton on a Fuji body? I can't find many shots on flickr with this combo and I'm considering if I should get the XF lenses or stick to my M lenses (including picking a 12mm Heliar instead of the 14/2.8)...

The 12mm Heliar is great (the ltm type, since it is smaller than the M-type) - and you don't need autofocus with that super wideangle. However the 1.2 Nokton is too big IMHO. I have both and for 35mm I use only summicrons.....

Thanks, Ron!
I think the 1.2 would balance better on an Xpro1 body, due to its size, I also have the 35/1.7 Ultron (which does work with the fuji adapter). I've used the 12mm a lot on an R-D1, and I just loved that combo.
