X-E1 + cheap adaptor + 58mm MC Rokkor f1.4
Jun 22, 2013

Have had little chance to do much with my new X-E1 but received a £15 adapter from ebay yesterday and tried out a few shots with my 58mm MC Rokkor f1.4 set at f2.8

I followed a couple of tips I read up on - used MF via the AEL / AFL button and then fine tuned using the focus ring...pretty quick, might leave it like that all the time.

Also changed the setting in the menus to "no lens", but as I'd read this can be left like that, my 18-55 still seems to function perfectly normally so why have to delve into the menus to change this ?

These have been processed from the RAW files in Silkypix, which I'm still getting to grips with, but overall I'm pretty pleased with the results.

Any comments / advice on using legacy lenses and Silkypix processing gratefully received.
