Nikon on Fuji

I finally gave a run using an adapted Nikon lens on my Fuji XT2.  I must say, the results are astounding.  I used my manual focus 180mm F 2.8 AIS lens, a lens renowned to be one of the finest ever made by Nikon.   I am not sure of the effective focal length with the adapter.  There is already a 1.5X extension from the Fuji’s crop sensor, and the adapter (Metabones) is fairly long so that probably adds another .5.  So I set the manual lens focal length at 300mm.   This lens is phenomenal.  The bokeh melts into the background.  These images were shot at the Herreshoff Marine Museum and on my walk back home.  Enjoy them as I did!

  1. Hi, sorry for brevity. Typing on phone.

    “There is already a 1.5X extension from the Fuji’s crop sensor, and the adapter (Metabones) is fairly long so that probably adds another .5.”

    That’s not how crop factors or adapters work.

    “So I set the manual lens focal length at 300mm. ”

    The correct focal length to enter would have been 180mm.

    Email me if you want to chat.
    If not, no harm, have fun.

    Best wishes
