    Fuji Showcase Takumar 50mm f/1.4

    Hi Doug, the only adapter that I could find here in South Africa for the Fuji is a kiwi adapter. Was pretty pricey compared to the m42-ef adapters. Solid build quality and does the job.

    Fuji Showcase Takumar 50mm f/1.4

    I think i was at around f/2.8-4. Can't wait to get my speed booster, really love this lens. What the price of the Kipon speed booster?

    Fuji Yashica 50mm 1:1.17

    I have to agree with you Marius, I honestly cant use the auto focus on the fuji. I have the 35mm fujinon lens and its great but just cant focus. Maybe the version 4 firmware will fix that but for now all my old lenses have a new lease on life and I'm loving the images they're creating.

Suffers terribly from vignetting though. But a decent focal length for street stuff. Some sample pics attached. Late...

    For me personally the focus peaking set on RED HIGH is a amazing, allows you to compose and focus simultaneously, whereas with the auto focus I found myself focusing then recomposing cause it takes too long to shift that green square with the buttons to where you want to focus.

    Fuji Yashica 50mm 1:1.17

    Hi All New member on the forum, but been reading for a while. I'm one of those who ditched my SLR for an X-T1. It's been taking a while to adjust to this camera, I love the form factor. But was just not "bonding" with it. I got it with the 35mm f1.4 lens which is fantastic, however I just not a...
