Anyone have any input on this lens adapted to X? I may have pulled the trigger too soon, but I grabbed one. Not cheap, hoping there are some special characteristics that will make it worth while.

The 42mm f/1.2 had a reputation of being somewhat soft at full aperture. I had the original Pen-F in 1964 with 38mm f/1.8, 100mm f/3.5 and later the 25mm f/2.8. The last lens was the sharpest, even at full aperture. I now have one for use on an X-Pro1 but have not tested it yet - too much other stuff going on.

Sure, np.  but the fuji X mount is only 1cm off from the pen-F, so likely no speedbooster.  Also, penf mount is about 1cm less in diameter, so some lenses (not yours) will have some of the control surface slightly covered.  Great lens choice.  The bokeh has a very old fashioned feel, with what I looked at on Google... I like the visible blades look.  Immediately makes you think the photo is old.

    • If I am understanding right, you are trying to open the file to move it? All you have to do is copy it by dragging it to your sd card, no need to open it, the camera will do that.
    • Hi guys, I have a cheap lav mic with a 1/8" cable that isn't producing any audio when plugged in to the XT200.  I played with the mic gain settings in the camera's menu, but still no help. The built-in mic works fine but obviously would like improved audio quality.  Does this camera require a powered microphone to be used instead?  Anything I'm missing something as far as settings go?  Does something need to be turned 'on'? I'm new to the camera game and upgraded from my iPhone, which obviously
    • Hi. I just bought 50 mm, f2 lens in silver for my silver XT3. When I opened the box I saw that the hood was black. The protective filter is black too. That was very disappointing. Because now the lens looks very ugly. If I knew I would have bought a black lens. I have also an X100V silver and its hood and protective filter is silver. This is how it should be. How can Fujifilm make such huge design mistake? Do you know if there are silver hoods for this lens? I found this http
    • This worked for me: in settings/cam remote I toggled Bluetooth and Local Network.   Same problem and since this app is inconsistent already it is hard to know when it works or not.  Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content.
    • Same problem with X100V, reconfiguring WiFi access didn't help. Guess I will have to wait for Fuji app update...
