Looking at adapters to mount pentax K mount lenses to xpro-1. The Novaflex is $300, but there's cheaper options, like the $40 fotodiox. Is there any gain in getting the Novaflex over another brand? (besides the aperture ring, as the lenses already have it). The price difference is pretty substantial.

I'd also love to hear from anyone who's mounted pentax lenses on the fuji- opinions, general thoughts, reviews, etc. I'm looking to use the 43mm & 77mm ltd specifically.

Hi,

I don't have an "X" cam but I believe that the Novaflex adapters have a tripod mount, which might even be removable. I'm not sure if the other adapters have this feature, you should look into it to be sure. As far as the price, I have yet to see a German made product that is poorly made, so while the others may work just fine one does have to pay for higher quality.

Regards,

Mark
