For an adapted lens it fits really well on the camera. It doesn't feel extraordinarily long on the XE1 (certainly shorter than my Rokkor 50/1.4). Man it sure feels great in the hand. De-yellowed it with several days under a UV light. The aperture turning the reverse from every other lens I have is interesting. I believe this is f4 or f5.6. FWIW the sharpness is actually pretty good wide open. I can see using this lens a lot.

I absolutely love this lens and used it a lot on both my Canon 350D and then later on my 5DII (though I had to be mindful of the focus distance as the rear element would touch the mirror and lock up the camera on occasion if shot near infinity). I tried it on an X-E1 but it make the camera feel quite front heavy as its no lightweight of a lens. I would love to try it on an X-T1 though.

My adapter for this lens to the Sony a7II just got here today. When the snow stops, I hope to get out with it and then come back here and revive this thread. It's a great lens and works beautifully on digital bodies.

These are from my days using an Fuji XT1 which I am posting here as this thread is a Fuji showcase thread but like @Lawrence A. my use with this lens hasn't been limited to Fuji cameras. Can this thread be moved to general lenses so we can all showcase this lens or would it be more preferable to start a new thread? FWIW, here's a few taken with an XT1, a wonderful camera to adapt lenses to.

I have an old Honeywell Pentax H1a camera. It came to me with the original 55/2 Super-Tak. I keep wondering about getting a 50/1.4 Super for it. I get tempted as it's one camera that could get me to burn a roll of film or three with that high quality of a lens on it...

Decisions...

Sorry, I hadn't noticed it was a Fuji thread. Nice shots.
