    I am seriously enjoying this camera.

    I bought the adapter to put my Minolta SR lenses on and am rather impressed with the overall quality and the functionality of it.

    Has anyone been using non-mfg. lenses with this beast?

    Any suggestions?

    These were two est shot with a Minolta 28mm f 2.8 macro set at open ap.

    This one was shot with the macro at about 1/2 foot.

    My old X-M1 still gets more use than my X-T2, and normally I use it with the 27mm f2.8.

    But I also use a Voigtlander 40mm Classic, especially for black and white images.

    Currently torturing myself trying to decide whether to get an X-E3 on sale(further reduced with a Fuji.ca $50 coupon)or wait for a full warranty demo/open box X-Pro 2. Like I really need either with two X-T1 bodies and an X-100T...
    Nice shots.

    So I wound up at a pawn shop the other day and came across this little beast.

    A 28-80mm Macro two touch Quantaray lens for $15. because I am running the mirrorless, shooting the old glass is becoming fun again.

    This little US Cent was a test shot by utilizing the zoom set at about 40mm and fine adjusted with the macro ring. Distance was approximately 1 foot, ISO 1600, f-11, 1/200th sec macro at approx. 1:5.

    Nice. I'm not seeing any chromatic aberration from that Minolta lens.
