  1. @g2622 the aperture does not change on the APS-C... nor does the actual focal length. What only changes is only the captured field of view.... I understand that, but am confused by andyfromboston's comment...
  2. I paid $119 for the DNA 11. Certainly not cheap, but I expect to last at least 10 years based on build quality. I've used it a few times in the field so far and find its accessibility and overall comfort the best I've ever experienced.
  3. "using an 85/1.8 on 36x24mm frame." An f/1.2 becomes f/1.8 on APS-C?! The DoF I get from my 35/1.4 seems much shallower than I ever recall getting from my 50/1.8 film camera from 35 years ago (have I really forgotten how cropped sensors have killed DoF isolation?
  4. Thanks VJC and Owtafocus… very helpful indeed! Now I wonder who the 56/1.2 will appeal to?
  5. I love the hybrid vf as it allows me to "open up" my field of view when composing so I can make those often critical final framing adjustments. I also find it indispensable when doing street and action or movement photography. Fuji has spoiled me with hybrid vf and I am hooked.
  6. I just received the GEARMAXX and it fit fine without cutting. Recommended!
  7. I ordered one, but have not rxd it yet. Will report when I get it. Would be fine to cut and trim for now. Hate scratches and cases...
  8. http://www.fujix-forum.com/index.php/topic/6248-photographer´s-guide-now-available-as-pdf/ does not provide a PDF of the ebook, but rather a collection of photos of the pages which is even not complete... thanks anyways for this link.
  9. Well, I needed the adaptor with an aperture ring on it for my Tamron 11-16 which has none. Thanks for the recommendations!
  10. WilzWorkz7, Per your adaptor requirement that follows, is it true that the Kipon adaptor is designed to maintain the adapted lens distance from the sensor the same as when mounted directly on the native camera body? c) The flange distance from the back of the lens to the sensor should be same as what the adapted lens is designed for. For example the flange distance of the X series is very much shorter than conventional DSLRs so the adaptor must introduce the exact distance to ensure optimal image quality. Any shorter or longer can impede the lens performance. Thanks so much for sharing your expertise! g262
  11. WilzWorkz7, thanks for this thread! Can you tell me if this adaptor will also work with Nikon full frame lenses (FX)? I am thinking of moving to the D600 in the next year. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kipon-Nikon-F-AI-mount-G-DX-lens-to-Fujifilm-X-Pro1-X1-Pro-mount-Camera-Adapter-/350567475283?pt=US_Lens_Adapters_Mounts_Tubes&hash=item519f732853 Thanks! g262
  12. @flyserfer and steve1401 - very helpful... thanks!
