A few full res images shot with the GFX and 17mm TS-E, first one was shot at f/11, 12mm (maximum) shift, the second is f/14, 8-9mm shift, no filters. I'd been using the lens with a fotodiox wonderpana hood and 145mm CPL, with the filter mounted, the corners take a hit in resolution and there is heavy vignetting after about 8mm shift.

p.10 #4 · p.10 #4 · Adapting Lenses to the Fuji GFX - 50s


So I just recieved the GFX and 63/2.8 yesterday and I've been following this thread closely. Ideally I would like to have a 3 lens setup to keep things simple. Looking for something wider and something longer to complement the 63.

The Rokkor 45/2 looks really promising. Any other alternatives I should concider on the wider end?

I do have the Hasselblad V-mount 50/2.8, 80/2.8, 110/2.0 and 150/2.8. While I'm curious to try out the 110 and 150 I'm not too thrilled about the length of the adapter.

So any FF alternatives to in the 100-180mm span? I'm thinking perhaps Nikon 105/1.8 or 180/2.8. All thoughts much appreciated.

I use the 105 1.8 nikkor ais, sharp and narrow DOF for portraits.
The rokinon 24 TS for architecture.
And I've also used a 80-200 2.8 push pull 80's nikkor.

All work well, sharp and cover the GFX frame, maybe ever so slight vignette but I haven't really noticed it.
They are definitely not for action shots .

Good luck,
mdr

Thanks, will look into them. I do have an old 105/2.5 that I can try as well. Regarding your comment on not being for action shots the whole reason for getting the GFX was IQ and being forced to slow down. Had a D850 with my name in the first shipment, but decided it was not for me.

Yea, the GFX has been great to force me to slow down as well.

Sounds pretty good to me. More compact than the Kipon adapter I'm using now; being able to set aperture from the body and having some EXIF data from the lens pass through would be convenient. I'm looking forward to seeing a review or two, am mildly curious about AF performance and performance with stabilized lenses - but even for manual focus use only it sounds like a better option than the Cambo and Kipon adapters.

Not many canon lens can cover the gfx sensor. I'm not too excite about the adapter.

I understand the 17 TS, 40/2.8 STM and 85L all cover the sensor. Those interestingly fill gaps between the 63 and 110. I remain curious about the 180L macro.

Well, all the tilt/shift lenses will definitely cover. That means 17, 24, 50, 90, & 135 for sure. It is not clear how much tilt or shift they will get (not much for the 17 & 24, but a little), but that isn't a bad place to start. The 50, 90, and 135 would be about a 35 f/2; 65 f/2; and 100 f/2 equivalents (when cropped to 4/3 or squarer), so they are not bad options at all. I have seen shots with the 135 f/2L that look pretty good too, and I suspect almost all the long telephoto lenses would work. Even the 200 f/2.8L might be a very good option as a 144 f/2 equivalent, and the 200 f/2 IS might be pretty special as a 144 f/1.5 equivalent with IS. I am not sure those 200mm lenses will cover the image circle, but I think there is a good chance they will. I personally will not be getting this adapter, and I don't plan to adapt any Canon lenses, but I can see why people would be interested in it.

Is the conversion 0.72 or 0.79? I thought latter...

It is .73 if you crop to 4 X 3 or squarer and .82 if you crop to 3 X 2 or a skinnier rectangle. Since the sensors are different aspect ratios you need to take that into account when thinking about the crop factor otherwise you aren't comparing apples to apples. Here is a calculator that Lee Saxon created that works well for comparisons:

Thanks for the info. I am leaning toward the Techart adapter b/c it allows IS along with AF, EXIF & aperture control. The IS will be handy for the 100-400. Since I was going to spend $300+ anyway, what's another $200?

Shame about those zooms other than the 100-400. I am also planning on investing in the new TS lenses which should be alright on the GFX.

Is the Contax 645 120/f2 better than the Carl Zeiss 135/ Apo Sonnar on the Fuji GFX. I need to get a good portrait lense and not sure which one performs better on the GFX Thanks Dennis

The Rokkor lens look fantastic. Can you recommend one for portraits using the GFX . This sounds more reasonable than the CZ and the Contax. Thanks

If you need a good portrait lens and you want autofocus (AF), then you need look no further than the Fuji 110 f/2. If you want manual focus (MF), then there are lots of choices. I have the Zeiss 135 f/2 APO and it performs excellently and allows very shallow depth of field. I plan to get the Contax 645 120 f/4 Macro (note this lens is f/4 not f/2), and by all accounts it is an excellent lens with a very short minimum focus distance (MFD). It is a macro after all. There are many other possibilities, however, including several from Minolta. You might consider the 100 f/2.5, for example which is a small and very competent lens (I am not sure if it covers the image circle, however). If you can find it the Minolta MC 100 f/2 has, in my view, among the best bokeh of any lens made and might be an excellent choice as well. Again I haven't tested or seen tested whether it covers the image circle. If you could live with a slightly shorter focal length the Minolta 85 lenses are all very nice and they have been tested to cover the image circle.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it. I am looking to buy the Minolta 85/1.7 I don't want to have to buy it from Japan but it seems that this is the only place that has a very good one. Thanks again
