I own a Fuji X Pro 1. I use the legendary Minolta 58mm f/1.2 Rokkor MC lens on it (with a cheap adapter). I only shoot it in black and white because it's one of the older versions and the lens' glass has yellowed.

The black and white images I obtain at any aperature are outstanding. In fact, I believe that the black and whites I take with this lens are slightly better than the black and whites I get with Fuji glass.

I've got other old legacy lenses that I use with my XP1, but this old fast Minolta 58mm is my favorite!

Well, you have a natural filter in there, don't you!
