I was very excited when I found out that there will be an adapter to connect Canon EOS EF lenses to the Fujifim X-Pro 1 mount, and ordered it right away. I currently own the Fujinon XF 18mm and 35mm lenses that cover my mainly used focal length. But I have some nice Canon EOS EF lenses that I want to use when I need a bit more focal reach.

Canon EF and "L" lenses on Fuji X-Pro1 | Smatty on DPreview | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Smatty continued his test of the Kipon Canon EF to Fuji XF lens adapter on last weekend.

Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 -
Canon EF 135mm f/2 L and
Canon EF 70-200mm F4 IS L plus TC 1.4x II

 

Question:

How do you adjust the aperture on an EF lens attached to the XP1? I have an FD adapter, and I got it because my FD lens has a manual Aperture ring, I assumed EF wouldn't be compatible since it's an electronically controlled aperture...

 

Answer:

So you can only use the Canon lenses at its wides aperture when connecting to the adapter. If you want to stop down there is a workaround by connecting it to your Canon camera, set the desired aperture, press the DOF preview button and pull the lens off while you still press the DOF preview button.

My Kipon Canon EF to Fuji XF adapter just arrived and I wanted to give it a quick try during lunch break. It just started raining a bit when I got out but I still managed to get a few shots.

I used the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 set to f/2.2 for the first try. The size and weight of this lens seems to be best suited for my use with the Fuji. I might go up to f/2.8 next time to get a bit more dof as this combo gives me an equivalent field of view of 130mm in 35mm terms.
