Sony FE lenses on Fuji X camera?


Recommended Posts

I recently got an X-t1 as a backup camera to my Sony A7III. I'd like to be able to use my various Sony FE lenses on the Fuji X camera.

I can't seem to find an adapter to use my Sony FE lenses on the new-to-me Fujifilm X-T1.

Does such an animal exist?

Thanks

Hi Trailz! To cut to the chase, no.

This is why...the flange distance on the sony is 18mm, for the fuji it is 17.7mm. They would have to create an adapter that is only 0.3mm thick... or (0.0118 inch) I think its too thin to create a sturdy adapter. 

For example...I shoot Nikon Z mirrorless (and Fuji of course) and the flange distance on those is 16mm. Being 2mm difference from the sony they were able to create an adapter for it. Even with 2mm it is still really small. You can see how thin here... https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1488597-REG/techart_pro_tze01_sony_e_nikon_z.html/?ap=y&ap=y&smp=y&smp=y&lsft=BI%3A514&gclid=CjwKCAiAg8OBBhA8EiwAlKw3khkKhMtm6X5vdK90csUfhP5TTpJ23-FrY2XStyN46ZCg7uKJVKqfYhoCpFEQAvD_BwE

Thanks Marcel, I didn't know such an adapter existed. I'm using Nikon Z in the studio here but some of my colleagues use Sony EF. I've been jealous of a few of the lenses (the Loxias and the GM135). I think I'll order one to see if it works and I'll let you know here.

    • I just got a new X-S10 and after about 4 days of use it started making an audible whirring sound when on. It's loud enough to hear at an arms length and makes too much sound for use with a hotshoe mounted mic. I've tried turning off the IBIS and autofocus and nothing seems to stop it. I am using the 16-80 predominantly but it also makes the sound with an old manual lens. The sound stops when in playback mode. I tried updating the firmware to the most recent which has not solved the issue. Does anyone have any ideas or should I just exchange it?   Thanks,
    • I just received my new XT-4. First time I have a Fuji and first time I have an hybrid. The camera invited me to upgrade the firmware to 1.20. I have download it on a card and followed the procedure. I obtained the screen "update completed. Turn off the camera". I turn off the camera but when I turn on again I can just obtained the same screen "Firmware upgrade" and not the menu.  What should I do to access the menu again ? Thank you for your support !
    • Does this mean the X-T40 is a dead issue permanently or is their still hope for one? Some say the X-S10 is actually it, Ken Wheeler for one, but the dials and style are not for me. Have an X-T30 and was hoping for an X-T40 with IBIS and other improvements.  
    • Just wondering if there is a grip that works with it. Thanks
