My X-T1 arrived today, just 2 days after purchasing it. As the XF 23 WR hasn't arrived yet, I mounted a Flektogon 35mm f2.4 and M42-FX adapter, both of which I've had for quite a while and never bothered to try selling. I clearly need to work on my MF technique with this lens, as I have no trouble getting clear, sharp images with the GX9 and Pen F 38/1.8.

As I understand it, the beauty of the the Flektogon is it's ability to focus really close, way closer than other legacy or rangefinder lenses, with one of the best ever bokeh blurs, which is not immediately obvious from an F2.4 aperture, but easily achived due to that close focusing ability. Sort of made for focus peaking. I do miss using my old Takumars and AI-S lenses with the X-T1 I used to have and will be checking used A7RII prices next year in the hope of even further price drops.

Shooting my dear Leica after a prolonged pause. The very first shot is just to check exposure and it's purposefully containing extra elements and stuff. But after the "lesser" (sorry) platforms this rendering is just at a class of its own...

This is heavily cropped so maybe I should also consider a M-Fuji X adapter. I have those ill-behaving M39 lenses that I could use on Fuji's EVF better.
