After announcing it was working on an adapter at CES, Fujifilm has officially announced the Leica M-mount device.
The adaptor enables the Fujifilm X-Pro1, the company's first compact system camera to be used with Leica M mount lenses, or those built to M mount specification.
Fuji says that the adapter has been designed to ensure the best possible results can be achieved from the lenses and the body, and has been crafted with precision engineering.
Three parts comprise the adapter, an aluminium mount for the body, a stainless steel mount for the lens, plus an aluminium central tube. This enables a 27.8mm distance from the lens mount to the sensor, which Fuji says is paramount for delivering high quality images
The Fujifilm M-Mount Adapter provides ultimate control by allowing users to create and fine tune lens profiles through the X-Pro1ís Mount Adapter Settings menu. This menu allows X-Pro1 users to profile up to six lenses. There are four pre-sets for 21mm, 24mm, 28mm and 35mm lenses, plus two optional settings for additional optics.
