As promised, Fujifilm reveals M-mount adapter for X-Pro1

The company alluded to the adapter when it announced the camera; now it serves up specs, pricing, and availability details.


Come this June, you'll finally be able to use your languishing Leica lenses on the Fujifilm X-Pro1 -- or at least expand on Fujifilm's small collection of lenses.

The new M-Mount Adapter will cost $199.99 and seems to provide full compatibility, including support for the camera's viewfinder framing corrections. Via the camera's Mount Adapter Settings you'll be able to create profiles for up to six lenses with corrections for distortion, peripheral illumination, and color shading across the frame.

It sounds well-built -- aluminum mount on the body side, stainless steel on the lens side, connected by aluminum.

I guess now's the time for X-Pro1 owners to start looking for some Leica lens deals.
