Is in camera control of distortion and vignetting recovery better than doing it in PP on a full size computer screen with LR/PS/A3 ..etc ? Those adjustments are done in camera and do not require the adapters contacts anyway. As others have said, I expected more innovation. Focus peaking at the very least seems a simple thing to do. Although again that would be an in camera function and nothing to do with the adapter.
What it seems to boil down to is with the Fuji adapter you pay a $150 premium to select frame lines outside of the camera menu ?? Is that it?
Partially agree with u. An example I bought a Rainbow adapter for m to x mount, I got lucky, infinity focus was right on... I have a Rainbow for an Sony NEX, m to Nex, that one infinity focus was way off.
in terms of the value of the contacts on the adapter, Dante says it best later on in todays posts. But until we get the firmware update and c the new adapter and c the combined effect, the jury is still out
