My adapted lens collection... so far


Recommended Posts

About 2 months ago I switched from a Canon system to Fuji. I could not be more in love with the Fuji. Anyways one of the biggest things that brought me to Fuji was the ability to adapt lenses so easily. Here is my collection so far:

  • Canon 28mm F3.5 FD mount
  • Canon 50mm F1.4 FD mount
  • Mamiya Sekor 50mm F2 M42 mount
  • Super Takumar 50mm F1.4 M42 mount
  • Super Takumar 105mm F2.8 M42 mount

Looks great. I am aspiring to do the same thing but am currently stuck while being educated on how to work with lens adapters ūüôā¬†This is the group of FD lenses ¬†I have to work with - I‚Äôm sure some are better suited than others.

20mm 2.8

50mm 1.4

35-70mm zoom

100mm 4.0 macro

135mm 2.5

100-200 zoom

300mm 5.6

Thanks,

Al

Bonjour ,

J' ai essayé le 2 de 28mm, le 2 de 35 mm et d'autres 1. 4 de 50 mm .Ils avaient tous une dominante jaune J'ai  revendus tous ces  ces objectifs Il me reste d'ailleurs un 24 mm dont je souhaite me séparer

.Et un jour j'ai acquis un canon 1.8 de 85 mm SSC et là c'est une pure merveille . Qualité des blancs piqué tout en un....

Les objectifs Konica sont pour  moi les meilleurs 28 24 35 85 100 et bien d'autres . 

Cordialement 

JM

Yellow tint?  I wonder if coatings change over time?

Yellowing is very common on certain older 'radioactive' glass used by some lens makers. Takumars and early FD lenses were noted for this and it's hard to find a non-yellowed Super-Takumar 50mm f1.4 for example. 

As to lenses, I adapt a mix of newer and older manual focus glass and currently have the following non-AF lenses that get used on my Fuji's to some extent or another:

Laowa 15mm f4 Macro (F mount, modern but manual focus and 1:1 macro)

Nikkor 20mm f2.8 AF (works fine as a manual lens)

Nikkor 24mm f2.8 K non-AI

Neewer 25mm f1.8 MC (rebranded 7Artisans, native Fuji mount but non-electronic)

Nikkor-H 28mm f3.5

Nikkor 35mm f2 AI

Super Takumar 35mm f3.5

Nikkor-S.C 5cm f1.4 LTM (my oldest and most beloved lens)

Nikkor 50mmf 1.8D (like the 20, works fine as a manual lens)

Micro-Nikkor 55mm f3.5 AI

Nikkor 105mm f2.5 AI-S (the famous 'Afghan Girl' lens)

Nikkor 200mm f4 AI 

Nikkor 300mm f4.5 K Ai'd

Nikkor 70-300mm f4-5.6 AF-D (works just fine as a manual lens)

Nikkor 50-135mm f3.5 AI-S

Vivitar 70-150mm f3.8 MC C/Y mount

Adapted lenses are all I use for my "personal" work. Love them. These are the ones I use most often on my x-t3, though I have too many to mention here.

 

Nikon 105mm 1.8

Contax/Zeiss 28mm 2.8

AutoSears 55mm 1.4

Konica AR 35mm f2

"Bokina" 90mm macro

Yashica ML 55mm 1.2

Nikon 300mm f4 AF "d" version

 

Which adapter are you using for your Nikon lenses? Is it a dumb adapter or with glass?

What adapters is everyone using? I'm interested in adapting Canon FD lenses (and maybe Canon EF lenses as well) to Fuji X.

There are so many brands and models. Some seem very basic, while others are super expensive such as Metabones Speed Booster models that cost around $600+. 

Also, any bad experiences?

Thank you.

    • Nice. Which one was taken with X100F?
    • Father and Sons in Yellow Shirts - Dhaka, Bangladesh Fujifilm X-T3 -¬†XF18-55mm f2.8-4 R LM OIS¬†- Fujifilm Classic Negative Color Film Sim ¬†
    • I can confirm this. My X100V had the same as do some of my other XF WR lenses. The fact that some lenses do and others don't (same lens) leads me to believe that Fuji has quite wide production tolerances. Over the past 7 years I've had (partly still have) 13 different XF lenses. 4 of them needed replacement due to production failures (loose aperture or focus rings, crooked mount...). Though I really like Fuji cameras, to me that is a bit too often...
    • It's quite a difference. As a basis the Leica Q2 already has a very good 47Mp full-frame sensor paired with one of the best lenses ever made (a 28mm Summilux). By leaving out the color array filter on the sensor and optimizing the sensor lenses for monochrome images, you get an incredibly sharp and contrast rich monochrome image. Without the color array filter you also boost the low light performance and expand the¬†dynamic range of the sensor by approx. 2 stops. In the meanwhile, I couldn't resist and purchased a Q2 Monochrome. I'm not disappointed. Though my X-Pro produces very nice Acros files, the Q2 Monochrome is a different league (also in price to be fair). I usually shoot monochrome for my personal work, but to be able to shoot at ISO25000 and have files as clean as an X-Pro at ISO1600 is amazing. At normal ISO levels, the level of detail and the tonality of the Q2 files is stunning. Both for the jpegs out-of-camera and the DNG raw files via Capture One.
    • I use Blender, it's an open source program, free¬†to use and many good tutorials on YouTube. The program is also used by professional moviemakers. It does the same or more as the apps recommended above. link to¬†Blender Edit: Davinci Resolve is another free video editor worth trying.
