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.

    • Salve, qualcuna sa quanti minuti / ore di filmato in full hd si riesce a fare su una scheda da 64 gb? Grazie
    • I’m thinking in the other direction. Considering trading my 18-55 and 85mm f1.8 (Viltrox) for the 16-80. I have a 23 1.4 and a manual 50 1.4, so I think the extra zoom range is better to have than the longer fast prime. Also, I like the 16mm length and don’t have that now....
    • +1  Plug in overnight and you are good to go next day.  You can also buy a second battery and external charger and swap out the batteries when one gets low.  This works well for me when traveling or forgot to recharge.
    • Yes, agreed. All of my computers are made in China and many other electronic devices are also made in China. Japanese cars, for example, are no longer guarantee of quality and reliability. Someone I know bought a Honda Odyssey and ended up with a broken transmission and costed him $5000 to fix. Personally, I had to dump my Toyota after only a little over 30,000 miles in less than 4 years due to brake problems and other electronic problems. I paid premium price for my Toyota thinking I bought quality. But quality was not there.
    • Have you tried an other SD card?
