    Hi, everyone!

    I wrote up a lengthy article on using (Leica/Zeiss/Voigtländer) M lenses on Fujifilm X cameras, looking at the Fujifilm M Mount Adapter and Kipon L/M-FX/M Adapter versions primarily, in use and performance. Enjoy, and hope it helps someone... :)

    Nice write up.
    I have the 90mm elmarit M 2.8 and a 90mm f4 minolta rokkor.
    The latter is a nice lightweight and small travel lens that fits into your pocket.
    I look forward to fuji bringing out a lightweight 90mm of their own. The 55-200 is a great lens but relatively heavy and largish.

    Thanks! :)

    The Elmarit-M is a real peach of a lens. Fits so perfectly on the X-T1 also, for a nice "135mm" f/2.8 lens. The Rokkor is cheaper, smaller and lighter though - and also great optically.

    I'm tempted by the 55-200, but I think I'm going to wait for the 50-140 f/2.8 (and 16-55 f/2.8) lens. Until then, I'll keep shooting the Leica 90/135 lenses.
