A host of new adapters have just been launched that allow owners of the Fujifilm GFX 50S to attach new and historic lenses from other brands to their mirrorless medium format camera.

K&F Concept has introduced eight of the adapters, and is offering completely manual mounts for some surprising brands, including Olympus OM. The K&F adapters are brass on both sides and have matte black interiors to prevent flare.

K&F Concept adapters:

  • KF-EFG: Canon EF - Fujifilm G
  • KF-CYG: Yashica/Contax - - Fujifilm G
  • KF-LRG: Leica R - Fujifilm G
  • KF-OMG: Olympus OM - Fujifilm G
  • KF-NFG: Nikon F - Fujifilm G
  • KF-SRG: Minolta MD-MC/SR - Fujifilm G
  • KF-PKG: Pentax K - Fujifilm G
  • KF-42G: M42 – Fujifilm G

None of the K&F Concept adapters have any electronic communication with the body, and all cost around ¥10,000 (approx. $90)

Contax 645 users will be more interested in this adapter from Fringer, which allows full electronic contact between the Fujifilm GFX and Contax 645 lenses.

The extent of the communications provides autofocusing for 35mm f/3.5, 45mm f/2.8, 80mm f/2 and 140mm f/2.8 lenses, aperture control on all lenses through the camera body, and full EXIF information in the image file. Fringer admits ‘AF performance is not as good as native GF lenses!’ but some AF is usually better than no AF. The Fringer Contax 645 – GFX smart adapter costs $750.

For more information see the K&F Concepts website (where there is no mention of the adapters) or the Shoten Kobo website (where there is).

More information on the Fringer adapter can be found on the Fringer website.
