FujiFilm M Mount Adapter for M Mount lenses on the X Mount camera body (X-Pro1 & X-E1)
Further expanding the functionality of the X-Pro 1 camera, Fujifilm has unveiled that it will release a highly-anticipated M-mount Adapter for the camera that allows a much wider array of lenses to be used with the camera body. This accessory will be specially made to enhance the experience of taking photos with the professional camera, allowing users to capture images with lenses made by such esteemed manufacturers as Leica, Voigtlander, Carl Zeiss and RICOH.
The adapter will be built with three main parts to create its high-precision structure: An aluminum mount for the body, a stainless steel mount for the lens and an aluminum central tube. It also features electronic signal contacts and a Function button. The adapter fits any of the newly available lenses perfectly to the camera body, without sacrificing design or build quality.
The adapter’s integrated electronic contacts communicate signals to the camera body. By pressing the Function button, you can bring up the Mount Adapter Settings mode instantly, making for easy operation when registering a new lens or swapping lenses, without having to go into the X-Pro 1’s menu settings—and thus, without missing a shot. The Function button allows you to choose the necessary settings and functions of your attached lens easily, including “Shoot Without Lens,” various focal length settings, image corrections and more. A firmware update will be required in order to use the electronic contacts and Function button correctly, and will be available early June 2012.
The Optical Viewfinder displays a bright frame that changes according to the defined focal length for easy, hassle-free shooting—allowing you to focus more on the photograph and not so much on the camera settings.
If you have a Fujifilm X-Pro 1 camera and were looking for more lens options, or if you were considering the camera but were hesitant because of the limited lens selection, then this forthcoming M-mount adapter should more than open things up for creative lens combinations and shooting styles. Effortlessly switch from a classic portrait lens, like the Carl Zeiss T*85mm f/2.0 ZM, to a super-wide 15mm f/4.5 from Voigtlander for landscapes, and back again—without missing a defining moment or gorgeous smile.
