Does anyone have any experience using the Nikon 35mm f/1.8 or Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art on the X-T2, X-T1, or X-Pro2? I am trying to decide if I am going to purchase one of the Fuji 35mm lenses while they are on sale, or if I should hold off and adapt my Nikon mount 35mm lenses.  

I am interested in your thoughts on IQ, DOF, bokeh comparisons etc. between the two Fuji lenses and the adapted Nikon mount lenses. Also, if you have used these lenses on your Fuji, what adapter you have used.

Just be aware that you will lose the aperture control since there are no connectors between the Nikon F mount and Fuji XF.

 

There are no smart adapter for the time being, so all of them are only various level of plastic/aluminium quality and shouldn't cost you more than 20$ most of the time.

 

In all honesty, I would rather use the Fuji 35 lens, first of all, it will be smaller and light than any other contraption you could find. You wouldn't lose the AF nor the aperture control either. And the 35 F1.4 is still one of the most beloved lens on the Fuji, you will not go wrong with it.

Thanks darknj. I am now leaning towards just getting a Fuji 35mm lens.

      Recently started to explore Pergear 35mm F1.2 lens on Fuji X. It's quite an interesting glass, and I'm going to discover more details about the internals soon by disassembling it.
      For now here's the initial review article of Pergear 35mm F1.2 on Fuji X-E2s camera. I'll keep updating it with more pictures and discoveries.

      Hi all,
      i have a Tenba DNA 8 ( i love it ) that i use to take with me:
      - Fuji xt3
      - Fuji 23mm/f2
      - Fuji 50mm/f2
      - Viltrox 85mm
      - two batteries
      After purchasing the Viltrox there is no more space and the extraction of a lens has become uncomfortable.
      In the future maybe i will buy also the fuji 35mm/f2.
      Which bag would you recommend?
      I don't like leather bags and i would like to spend max 120 €.
      Thanks in advance.
      Ale

      I have this lens (XF mount version) for about 4 month, and like how it performs on Fuji X-E2s.
      The only thing I was missing - is click-stop aperture. Today I've finally made that mod : )
      It's quite simple if you have proper tools and repair skills, so including related article to use:

    • I must have activated the wrong setting because now when I switch to the OVF the white windows stays for a second and then completely disappears. Any idea how to get it back? Thank you all so much. 🙂
    • No thunder stolen. If you read to the end of my article you'll see (in the section "Resources") I have a link for Simon Weir's site. I also have two other links on there with various IR tests. My article is only Fuji-centric because that is my system of choice though I've done a ton of IR work with Sony FF as well. I consider the sites for which I provide links to be complementary and I wish there were more sites out there evaluating for infrared. Although I test for infrared quite thoroughly I can only afford so many lenses. The eight Fuji mount lenses shown in my article I bought myself. In fact, same with the Sony and Micro 4/3 with the exception of the two Sony APS-C zooms that were rented. Also when I get new lenses, I'll update the article on my blog. I can't update the PetaPixel one as they just republished what was on my blog at the time. I have recently shot with the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.2 Fuji-X and 7Artisans 35mm f0.95 Fuji-X. After trying 2 samples of the Voigtlander I returned them both but mainly for their strange and unacceptable (for my work) performance with resolution. Regarding IR, the Voiglander is free of hotspots from 1.2 through about f3.5. I'm impressed with the 7Artisans overall but it only works for IR at wider apertures (f0.95 through about f2.8.) Then again that's why you buy an f/0.95 lens. Thanks for the feedback. Happy shooting! Joel
    • Yes I don’t blame you. I’ll always have some Fujifilm gear. But if they don’t upgrade their gear in the next 3 months I’m going to go back to Canon for a lot of my work. I really love Fujifilm for all the right reasons but it’s faults are getting in the way of my work at this point.
    • You're welcome. I still use my X-Pro2 for personal work every now and then, but I replaced the X-H1 (and the rest of the Fuji-kit) with a Z7II-based kit and I'm very satisfied with that move.
    • That’s a lot of great info. I’m gonna explore those options. I don’t really wanna get an XT4 at this point. (Come on X-H2!) Thanks!
