    I just ordered this lens for my XH-1/XPro-3. Thank you for the great article, and the pictures. I think I had a mirror lens in the 70’s for a Pentax ME. I still have the camera 😉

    Can you use focus peaking with this lens? Is it useable handheld in good light?

      I haven’t used this specific lens, but I do have a Minolta Maxxum telephoto, a Tokina wide-angle zoom, and a Tamron 500 mirror lens (all Sony A-mount) adapted to my Fujifilm X-S10. They all work fine in “A” mode with focus peaking.

      The 500 mirror I have is very squirrely in almost any light, but if you have IBIS you will probably be OK. Even a monopod would help quite a bit…remember, you’re going back to manual focus like a caveman lol.

    Great review! I have one on the way, and feel much better about the purchase thanks to you!

    That sleeve mock-up is a great idea. I’d love one on my Fujifilm camera. I wonder if my local 3D Printing Club can spin one up?
