SMC Takumar 50/1.4+Fuji X-T10 - Non focused picture

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hello everybody!
There is a problem with the SMC Takumar 50/1.4 lens.
I have a Fuji X-T10.
I bought lens on ebay from Japan - SMC Takumar
Also bought an adapter - Adapter

When installing the adapter and lens there is no focused image, the image is blurred. 
The manual focus wheel on the lens does not adjust the focus.
The settings on the camera are set correctly - the focus is transferred to the manual mode, the mode "Shoot without lens" is set. 
What could be the problem? Adapter? Lens? Camera settings?
Examples of photos attached.
I would be grateful for any help.

Ilya.

that adapter is too short (as written in the description).
Try to find a "PK-FX" or "K-mount - FX" adapter. You need a correction of the flange distance from Fuji X-Mount (17,7 mm) to Pentax K-Mount (45,46 mm), so the adapter should be 27,76 mm long.

How did you get the lens (pk) to fit on the adapter (m42) since they have different mounts?

Assuming the lens you posted is what you have, you'd need a Pentax K to Fuji X mount adapter like this: https://www.amazon.com/Fotodiox-Lens-Mount-Adapter-Mirrorless/dp/B008BBI994

I've used numerous Pentax and Takumar (m42) lenses adapted to my Fuji cameras without any issues.

Thank you very much for answers. I bought this adapter https://ru.aliexpress.com/item/High-Precision-M42-FX-Lens-Adapter-for-M42-screw-Mount-Lens-To-for-Fujifilm-X-Pro1/32745938005.html?spm=a2g0s.8937460.0.0.5f212e0eCOOE88 and now everything is OK. Thank you.

      Well, looks like my first post here is the first post on this forum!!
      ;)
      I found a used GFX100 and thought it was a good deal...and I dropped the hammer on it.
      Even used price eats up a LOT of funds....but I found that the 50mm GF 3.5 lens was half price about $499 or so at B&H, so I got that.
       
      I also went ahead and got the Fotodiox new adapter and hoping I can use some of my Canon L glass with it adapted....and I purchased the new Metabones Speedbooster Cine adapter so that I can use my Hasselblad V System lenses...which I'm hoping will really be something fun to use and experiment with.
      ON the Hassy lens, I have the 50mm, the 80mm and the 150mm....all in really near mint condition.  
      I have a Hasselblad 501CM 6x6 film camera, and honestly, I was holding on to let them put out the new CFV 50 C II Digital back to use on my old 501 CM....but I started getting the GFX100 under my skin and watched WAY too many YouTube videos on it and when I found the used one, I couldn't resist.
      Anyway, This will be my first Fuji digital camera.  I scored a good deal on an older MF Fuji GSW690 III MF 6x9 camera...it is fixed lens, but WOW..talk about great images!!
      So, that's where I am...hoping it comes in by this weekend.  I'll start researching and maybe trying to rent a few of the nicer Fuji GF lenses, all of which seem awesome, but need to figure which one(s) to start saving my pennies for first.
      Ok, my first post on the forum....Hello Everyone!!

      Hi,
      I'm having some weird issues with the Fringer EF-FX Pro II on my Fuji XT3 and I hope someone can help.
      When using the adapter with my Canon and Sigma lenses the image on the camera LCD is not showing the correct depth of field for the selected aperture unless I half-press the shutter button.
      The dof in the image remains wide open unless I half-press the shutter.
      The exposure of the image is shown correctly and changes accordingly when changing the apertue on the lens, the aperture numbers on the screen also indicate the correct selected f-stop, but the dof in the image remains shallow, as if the lens is wide open, unless I half-press the shutter.
      Half pressing the shutter also no longer affects the focus of the image.
      I'm shooting in S mode with settings full manual- ss, iso, aperture.
      I've formatted the camera, updated to the latest firmware in camera and adapter (1.7) and the issue still persists.
      Is this there a menu fix I'm missing here? Has anyone else experienced this? Or is this possibly a Fringer issue?
      Thanks for your help!

      Hi guys!
      Any of you has experience with Fotodiox's adapter for Mamiya RZ lenses?
      I have purchased it a few months ago and it works on my GFX50s, but the lenses are not firing on my Mamiya anymore (unless the shutter is set on emergency/mechanic mode).
       
      Thank you in advance.
      Best regards,
      William

      Hi all, does anyone have experience with a K&F adapter and the Canon TSE lens? I understand i cannot set the aperture with the Fuji camera. Now: Some say a canon lens will default to open aperture. While K&F says, it will stop down fully, (which i can't imagine).
      Some say, set the aperture on a Canon body, then take the lens off (probably while holding the shut-aperture-button??).
      Can anyone tell if and how it works? Thanks! I mean, that TSE 17 mm is a wonderful piece of glass and all 😃

    • All I can say is I had the screen open on the camera and when the camera was realizing it was supposed to connect I pressed a few random buttons. I don’t know if canceling and going back in did it or if I had to confirm something. The wording is kind of hard to understand on those screens on the camera itself. But after messing around with it like that for a few minutes I heard the familiar shutter sound meaning it was about to connect to the iOS device. So far it has been working fine just like
    • Thank you for you reply. I am living in Georgia (Country) and unfortunately there is not official dealer in our country. I ll try to buy the housing online and replace it. :( 
    • This looks really bad, the camera needs a new housing IMHO. You should contact the Fuji service or your dealer.
    • Is there any way I can fix this (PFA). Peak design clip damaged and can't use any tripod anymore.  Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content.
