Fotodiox Pro launches five GFX lens adapters
Fotodiox Pro has launched five new lens adapters for the forthcoming Fujifilm GFX medium-format system. This will allow lenses from other systems to be used with the GFX 50S, though as Fotodiox’s website points out, not every lens will give great results. All tilt-shift lenses and many full-frame lenses longer than 50mm will cover the GFX’s sensor, but anything wider will produce vignetting.
The new lineup features adapters for the Canon EF-Mount, Nikon F-Mount, Olympus OM-Mount, Mamiya 645, and Contax. The adapters are priced at $150 with the exception of the Mamiya 645, which is priced at $170.
The adapters are made entirely from metal with chrome-plated brass mounts and a ‘precise fit and solid connection.’ The company also says it uses ‘enhanced craftsmanship and high-tolerance construction for demanding professionals.’
Finally, Fotodiox cautions, ‘This is a manual adapter, so lens functions that rely on electronic communication with the camera body (autofocus, AE metering, image stabilization, etc.) will be disrupted.’ All five lens adapters are available from the company’s website now.
