Ive been keeping an eye on the new smart adapter that Fringer have brought out for Canon EF lens to Fuji X Bodies and was wondering if anyone has been delivered one yet from prerelease sales and got to test their lens out on a Fuji Body?.
For those that dont know the smart adapter is here https://www.fringeradapter.com/#for-x-mount
Ive especially been interested in it for my Xt-20. I want to put my EF100-400 IS MKII on the Xt-20 because now Im using my ef400 f2.8 MK2 with 1.4extender almost fulltime on my 5dsr and my 100-400 is sitting idle. Ive got no other body to currently use it on except for my aging 5dMk2 and whilst it is ok on that it would be even better on the Xt-20 given its got a great aps-c xtrans sensor which will give me an effective range of 640mm which will really be a bonus for bird photography!.
Over the last few months Ive been watching the progression of the testing of Fringer smart af adapter via Youtube videos and it looks like its going from strength to strength with each firmware update with even Fuji themselves recently asking Fringer for some units to use in an up and coming promo. This is all great however so far there are very little user reviews apart from this one recent review thats just come on youtube https://www.youtube.com …ontinue=206&v=aqaPdrqGf8I so Im looking for other feedback in addition to this review if they are available . That is feedback on how fast and on target the adaptor AF function is and what sort of lens and fuji body it is being used on.
Ive also seen that there is a steelring and Kipon smart adaptor planned for the Fuji Xi series bodies with interchangeable lens so if anyone has got one of those instead of a Fringer I would certainly be interested in hearing about it
BTW It certainly makes sense in my mind that this smart adaptor will continue to be developed for future Fuji bodies and Canon Lens especially given the success Sony has had with the development of smart adaptors for Canon Lens with their newer mirrorless bodies like the A9 A7RII etc. etc.
