Fuji X-Pro1: Leica M mount to Fuji X mount Adapter Review

***Update*** June 12, 2012 With the release of the body firmware 1.10, Fujifilm has added custom frame lines to the optical viewfinder.

Fun with Zeiss 18mm F4 ZM on Sony NEX-7

So I decided I show you how much fun I’ve been having. I don’t want to give the lens back at this point and although the cost is high, It’s a really fun lens to play around with. All the images were shot hand-held at night. Most used aperture was F4.0. Focusing I love how with this lens […]
