Nathan ............. are these Leica-M range finder lenses you refer to ?

 I suspect that the 35mm f1.4 M and 90mm f2.8"bug eye" lenses are precluded 
from the 'Fotodiox' adaptor. I have one of each.

Do you have any opinion on he ultimate image quality of one generated by a 
native Fuji lens on a X-T* DSLR as compared to one generated by an attach Leica 
M lens 


By "Leica" and / or "Leica-M" I am assuming the real thing, or as a minimum the 
'Konica M-Hexanon"lenses of which I have the 50mm f2 which found my way from a 
die hard Leica enthusiast in Vancouiver, BC a few years ago.
