Great Wide Angle for X-Pro1
May 26, 2012

I was not impressed with the Fuji 18mm, even stopped down to F8 or F11 it still went mushy way too far from the edges.

Then I bought a Nikon lens adapter, tried the Nikon AF 20, 24, still not good.

Finally got my Fotodiox EOS lens adapter yesterday. Put my Canon 10-22 on the X-Pro1 and I think I found a winner... I have not tried it at long distances/infinity, only in the close up range indoors, but even here the Canon blew the 18mm Fuji out of the water (Canon was set at F8). Of course, not sure if my 18mm is a "not as sharp" copy while my 10-22 is a "good copy", so standard YMMV disclaimer applies!

FWIW, the 10-22 with Metabones adapter is also the best WA combo I have found for my NEX-7, hence trying the X-Pro1 adapter to see if it worked just as good on this camera.

Hope this helps those people asking about WA options for the X-Pro1.
