Retailing in June at £179, the Fujifilm M-mount adapter is comprised of three parts: "an aluminium mount for the body, a stainless steel mount for the lens plus an aluminium central tube," says Fujifilm.
"This construction enables the Fujifilm designers to accurately maintain a 27.8mm distance from lens mount to sensor, which is crucial for the delivery of high quality images."
It adds: "The camera side of the M-mount Adapter features an array of electronic connections that automatically pass information to the X-Pro1 body based on pre-registered lens profiles. With firmware version 1.10 or later, this information is transmitted by pressing the Function button on the side of the adapter, which allows users to access the Mount Adapter Settings menu on the rear LCD."
The M-mount adapter can also allow users to benefit from the X-Pro 1 Hybrid Multi Viewfinder, which offers a 100% field of view.
"Users can also create and fine tune lens profiles through the X-Pro1's Mount Adapter Settings menu," says Fujifilm. "This menu allows X-Pro1 users to profile up to six lenses. There are four presets for 21mm, 24mm, 28mm and 35mm lenses, plus two optional settings for additional optics.
