I have an 85/1.9 LTM Canon but I seldom use it. When I need a longer lens than the 50mm that's usually on whatever LTM Leica I'm using I most often use a 135/3.5 Canon. With the 1:1 SHOOC viewfinder...

I find it very easy to focus the X-E2 using the Focus Peak Highlight option under Manual Focus Assist. I focus with the f/2.8 lens wide open and stop down to shoot.

You will need a Leica-mount lens, either M or LTM, to work with the BEOON. My BEOON setup uses a Fuji X-E2 and a 50/2.8 Schneider Componon S enlarging lens (M39 thread). I am _very_ happy with the...
