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.

      Hi,
      I’m thinking about purchasing the GFX100s for architecture photography.
      Can anyone share their experience?
      What Tilt/shift lens can I can use? I don’t believe that Fuji offers a T/S, correct?Currently, I’m using a Canon 5DMK IV with the EF 24 T/S. Is there a way to use that lens on the GFX100s? 
      Thank you,
      Mark

      I was imagining if ,fujifilm itself or any third parties ,make a auto focusing speedbooster to use fujifilm gfx lenses on fujifilm x series camera's !! . i might sound stupid , but actually it has great benefits in many area's . people who own x series and gfx series ,don't have to buy different lenses . also the camera industry is slowly shifting to medium format from full frame , so we will start seeing speedbooster for gfx lenses to different fullframe mount's of other manufacturer cameras too . so what do you think about this ? ,let's us all share our opinion's here ! about this , so maybe this might lead to a speedbooster ,like we said ! ,from fujifilm or third parties !! ,since many are using gfx camera's these day's ,who also has a x series body with them . so share your opinion's about this here , have a nice day !

      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!
