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.

    • Thanks for the recommendation David! 
    • You could try to lock the joystick by pressing and holding Menu/Ok until a lock symbol appears. You can unlock the same way.
    • sometimes happen when connecting with remote app , it's more likely the camera remote app issue ,rather than camera software issue . the only few times i got the same freezing issue was when i connected with the remote app . never happened otherwise , not even once . hope this helps . have a nice day ahead !
    • Same expect according to Fuji, it's supposed to work on my version of OXS (Mojave). Installed the latest version of X Webcam 2, did a firmware update on X-T30, changed the USB connection setting to USB Webcam, connected the camera through USB (no hub). The camera is not recognized and doesn't show up under available cams. Also, Fuji X Webcam software's entire interface is grayed out.
    • Ive had the xt3 for a year and a half. I also have the same lock ups using flash. I recently bought a new camera for video work and will also replace this one. Luckily I haven't been caught off guard yet but I can't imagine being at a wedding and this happening. Considering the $5000 invested in Fuji Im not happy.
