Hi all, newby here. Appreciate if you can help/comment on this. I have Fuji X-T 10 and for the time being I'm using my legacy lenses.


When 'Using Manual Adapter' options to choose a focal length, should the focal length be the actual focal length of the lens in use or its crop factor equivalent?


For example. I have a Super Takumar 35mm f3.5 on an adapter (great lens  BTW) . Do I use the 35mm option or, say. the 55mm option?


Similarly, Helios 58mm f2 at 90mm?

I believe the option just puts the number you input into the exif data, so any number will do. Probably best to put the equivalent focal length.

Thank you Mirror Mirror. I also got a reply from Fuji telling me to enter the actual focal of the lens being used. I've also noticed you can tune the settings for each lens for colour and distortion. Bit of experimenting coming up.

only M lenses are “ tunable”.


Other lenses aren’t. 

the popular expression wishful thinking is an oxymoron!
