Hi all, I have just started to use an X-T2 and have still kept the Nikon, I have an adapter to use my Nikon lenses with the Fuji.  I need to set the focal length in Mount Adaptor Settings, it seems simple enough for primes eg. 105 mm, 35 mm, etc, but how do I input the focal length when using a zoom?  Do I set up the shot and then, before taking it, input the actual, or nearest!, focal length - then shoot?  I can get up to 999 mm but can't get 80-200 mm.......................... over to you.

there are many threads about adapted lenses. In any forum before opening new threads is always better to follow previous one, because you will get more visibility and ultimately are part of the collective wisdom.

 

 

 

First of all..you don’t need to input the focal length for anything else than the EFX. In this way it will show which focal lens was used and the shutter speed (but it won’t do anything to the aperture because they are never connected)

 

The setting of the focal length does nothing else aside for Leica M lenses ( which do have a certain amount of correction). It will simply show in the EFX dat, but that is all.

 

Any manual lens (even if not adapted) is subject to this. Also the ones with a native Fuji FX bayonet.

 

It is impossible to put a focal length of a zoom and , unless you use a program to change the EFX data you certainly cannot modify this after the shot.

 

I forget to change this setting with every shot as it does absolutely nothing and generally I know If I shot a picture with which lens.

Thanks Milandro, that seems quite clear, which I must say is not the case in the manual.  No worries then  :)
