When I sold all my Olympus kit, I decided to keep my analogue OM10 and the 50mm and 70-210mm lenses.
I was thinking about using analogue lenses on my X-T4 but didn’t imagine that the OM lenses would work on the Fuji system (I had dismissed it).
Imagine my pleasure when I found out they do work – and they work very well..
I watched this great film from Roy Cruz and was pleased to see him demonstrating how to shoot with the X Series and the OM 50mm – the lens I own!
Thanks to our Seattle based retailer I was able to get hold of an OM to X Series mount and have it delivered the next day.
It just arrived and I was itching to try it out.
As you can see, when attached to the X-T4 it looks like they were made to work together.
As expected the tele lens does require a steady hand or a tripod to get the sharpest images.
The 50mm doesn’t have any such issues.
As demonstrated in this test shot of Tilly, you can get some nice crisp photos with a decent creamy background (I think I shot this at f/4).
I was pleasantly surprised to see that when (manually) focussing the lenses, the focus peaking on the X-T4 worked 🙂 I don’t think this used to happen on my Pen f or my EM 5 so am pleased to have the extra support from the camera to ensure I nail the focus.
I was worried about the cost of new lenses for my X-T4 but now I don’t have to worry as a £25 mount has given me access to two great vintage lenses 🙂
If you would like to try some OM glass on your Fuji X Series camera, I can recommend the K&F Concept OM to FX,OM Fuji Adapter.
I look forward to getting out and shooting with my new set up.
