    Fuji X-E2 with a Nikon E Series adapted lens, SOOC. Certainly not perfect but interesting F16/22 rendering of multiple point sources, colour's accurate and hardly any flare. Manual focus, so cheap to buy, but fun to use DSCF8991w.jpg

    Can't go wrong with that lens.

    Nice rendering. I have the Nikon E 75-150 as my telephoto go-to and I really enjoy it. Those E series lenses are underrated.

    I was thinking prior to their release, that the new Nikon mirrorless cameras would result in the price of the E series lenses increasing. Thankfully that's not the case. They are great lenses.

    Many thanks for your comments. Adapting to a Fuji body has been so far best for me with Pentax and Nikon lenses, only downside being their weight. Manual focus is an issue at times, but all in all a cheap way to have fun. To be fair I should try some comparison shots with my 16-50 and 50-230 Fujis.

    I have always found that Nikon lenses handle these sort of shots better than Fuji ones.

    Lovely shot.

    Of all the adapted lenses I’ve used, Nikkors have consistently been the best (I don’t own any Zeiss or Leica). They’re not the smallest lenses and Pre-AI versions I like tend to be a bit heavy but I wouldn’t trade them for anything. My 28/2, 35/2, 50/2 and 105/2.5 all produce excellent results. A few of them right up there with the Fuji lenses.
