Re: Carl Zeiss on X-E1

You can buy adapters for a number of mounts that you might find on Zeiss glass that will allow you to fit them to Fuji X mount.  I'm not sure which Zeiss mounts you have.  You can buy them for Contax Yashica and Leica M to Fuji X.  You can also buy them for Nikon F & G and Canon EF to Fuji X mount in case you are using Zeiss ZF or ZE series.

I suggest you have a look through the websites of companies like Novoflex, Metabones, Kipon, Fotodiox, Pixco and others for the details.  If you want any electronic connections for Canon versions, suggest you look at the Metabones or JR smart adapters.

Be aware that you can pay from $10 to $200 each for plain adapters and more for those with electronic couplings, speed boosters, tilt shift and other additional features.  You'll find many threads here from people who've found the cheap ones excellent, and others who've had a lot of trouble and switched to more expensive brands.  It seems that the experience varies......

Cheers, Rod
