Fuji X to m42 screw-mount adapter
Oct 23, 2012

Hello,

I've been wondering if anyone tried any of the m42 adapters yet. I have two m42 lens that I'd like to use with x-pro1 (or x-e1):

- Helios 44-6 58mm f/2

- Vivitar 28mm f/2.5

Is Kipon any good? I've seen that some people have got compatibility problems with it.

My current slightly ambitious plan is to start with this two manual adapted lens on x-pro1 and get either fuji's 23mm or 27mm later when they are released. As far as reviews go people seem to be happy with manual focusing experience on x-pro1 and x-e1 and that gives me some hope. But lack of autofocus will definitely be challenging for me. That must make me a better photographer, though.
