Will this lens work with the fuji tele adapter 1.4?

Looks good. I have a set of Carl Zeiss Jena lenses in M42 which should shine with some Ektar or Ferrania P30 loaded up. I grew up with film, and hate getting gouged for CLA and repairs which almost equal the full price of this Reflex. If you love digital, stay digital. But I hedge my bets with both digital and film.

Bad News- They are wacky, tree-hugging, latte-sipping, San-Fran Snowflakes.

But their stuff is excellent.. so patronize them. Could care less about their wacky politics. I even still listen to Moby on Spotify, and he's just as wacky..politically speaking. I'm no hate monger, Astro Boy.. just a realist.

Malikknows: Lovely video and description. The user experience -- joy of use and ownership -- seems to be what truly sets the Q apart from other offerings.

I use an A6000 with a manual focus Voigtlander for street and travel photography but I think a Q is in my future.

I also use a Sony Nex7 with CZJ Flektogon. A Q would be awesome...

David Grant: Always inspiring and instructive to see the work of a great photographer. And Steve McCurry is indeed a great photographer.

Thank you, Mr. McCurry, for getting me into photography after my stint in the US Army- where an Olympus OM-2 was purchased from the PX. Your shot was (and still is) awesome.

mrb375: I have switched to Nikon and Sigma.. but the current E-5 and 12-60 lens is very nice. The 4/3rds sensor (however) tends to blow out highlights and has less in RAW for shadows.

I've owned OM, EP-x, E-420, 520, 620, and E-30. All perform *decent* but lose out to APS-C & FF.

I guess what I mean is, if the buyer has $1100 to spend, the best choice would be a Nikon D7000 over the EM-5. If you look at the costs of m4/3rds lenses- again Nikon wins.

The new EM-5 looks like a nice piece, but I like the flexibility of Nikon more. Why Olympus fervently continues with 4/3's and m4/3rds is beyond me. They have to grow or (unfortunately) die.
