Why buy a new Fuji X lens, when you can buy an equivalent fixed lens body for less?

Why not buy a cheap £15 adaptor and old, but great quality, MF lenses off ebay for a song compared to new lenses / cameras...even more cost effective, the only thing you lose is AF

Great recommendation, especially when considering that I almost always manually focus.

I've tried many old manual legacy lenses with adapters on my Fuji X cameras.   While the telephoto lenses looked great, I have not found a wide-angle that really shined on a Fuji X camera.

Are you aware of any great wide angle legacy performers on Fuji X cameras??
