Fuji sells a 35mm 1.4 for the price of the adaptor. I have one and when I 
tested them, it would be at leat on par with the 50mm cron R which I 
consequently sold …

I have a technical question - does the adaptor preserve the original intended 
field of view? Or does the « crop factor » modify the angle?


Nice takes
