Hi guys

Not too many topics about the 50R ... Nevermind ... Well, I need some help about the problem as exposed in the tittle :  In the GFX 50R menus, there is an option for customizing lenses from other brands one can use with an adapter ring. Same as with the X-T series.

No problem for declaring the focal lenght, works fine; the hitch is on the next lines which remain greyed out, and thus not usable (adjusting vignetting, distortion, color ...) Nice things but out of reach !

Disregarding this problem, the adapter (Fotodiox Pro) works fine with some of my old Nikkor's.

Does some one out there have an idea ?

Thanks in advance,

Regards

I am starting to wonder if the GFX50R has some general problems with adapters. I was hoping to use my Canon TS-E lenses via adapter, unfortunately so far I haven't found one that works properly. Two copies of the Techart showed "lens error" (manufacturer couldn't identify the cause), a Viltrox only worked on occasion and otherwise also caused "lens error" (waiting on a replacement for this one at the moment). So any experiences (especially positive ones) would be greatly appreciated.

Cross posting here the response of mdm :

I'm afraid the options you are talking about would be available only when "FUJIFILM M MOUNT ADAPTER" is attached (http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/accessories/lens/mount/fujifilm_m_mount_adapter/). But I don't think you need to bother about them. Just setup your focal length correctly and that's enough.

@ algrove

and so do I, but what about " No problem for declaring the focal lenght, works fine; the hitch is on the next lines which remain greyed out, and thus not usable (adjusting vignetting, distortion, color ...) " ?

    • Thank you for your suggestion, but 70 is too tele for me, I did some shots regularly at 50, 55, 60 on my 16-80.
    • When considering the 55-200 also have a look at the 70-300. There's not much difference between f4.8 and f5.6 at the long end and the 70-300 is certainly a faster focusing lens. I'd buy the 55-200 only when it is a great second-hand deal. There's only €100 difference between the two lenses when purchased new. In that case I'd go for the 70-300, but that's just me... 😉 Best Fujifilm Telephoto Zoom Lens 2021 | Photography Blog
    • Thank you! This is great news. Fujinon XF 55-200mm f3.5-4.8 R LM OIS has got nice price, and its aperture in the range of 55-80mm is a little faster than on Fujinon XF 16-80mm f4 R OIS WR that I own, but at 200mm it's f4.8 which I can't tell is usable. I bought 16-80 for indoor sports but also for general purposes like landscape and architecture to complement my 35mm f1.4. For indoor sports, I used it in the range of 50-80mm so far, and I needed some more zoom, but I also know that at some other gyms that I've been before even the 35mm was fine when I could place myself near the court. Not sure if 55-200 is ideal solution for sports either, but it's much cheaper and lighter than 50-140. Heck I think even f2.8 is too small aperture for indoor sports. If I don't go for 50-140, I would most likely go for 55-200.
    • The push function on the rear-dials of the 'earlier' X cameras is quite prone to defects. I believe it was solved in the X-H1 and the X-T3 thereafter, but X-E3's have the earlier internal design. The push function could 'stick' in one function or between functions causing the rotate function not to work properly. If that happens, internal cleaning or replacing is the only option. Something that (most of) you can't do yourself.
