Fuji GFX 100s with Canon TS-E 24II, seeking an adapter that works!
« on: September 29, 2022, 11:42:44 am »

Couple of years ago when I had the GFX 50 I purchased the Canon TS-E 24II for a trip to Maine with a Fotodiox adapter.
Was a disaster, adapter did not work.

Has anyone found an adapter that DOES work with either the 24II or the 17?

I did find an expensive adapter that supposedly works but a company I am not familiar with, Fringer:

I just found a lens I was not aware of, never even heard of the manufacturer BUT they seem to have very good reviews but softer than the Fuji lenses reportedly:
Venus Optics Laowa 20mm f/4 Zero-D Shift Lens for FUJIFILM GFX, $1,099.

Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/4.5R Zero-D Shift Lens for FUJIFILM GFX,  $1,199!
https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1717018-REG/venus_optics_ve1545gfxr_laowa_15mm_f_4_5r_zero_d.html

A fraction of a Canon TS-E with adapter, if there is on that actually works.
But I am critical about sharpness in all of my landscape work, but I might order the Venus lens and try it out.

Cambo made an auto-aperture adapter not long after the gfx came out. It does not transmit exif data to the camera, but does have electronic contacts on the lens side to power the closing down of the aperture. It has a small LED screen on it so you know what F-stop you are at. It was designed around using the Shift lenses as it has a larger lens throat than what is typical on the other „smart“ adapters. I tried one of those (I don‘t recall which now), but it caused a lot of flaring on the sensor. The Cambo one does not, it works well.

I‘ve had one for years and it has worked well for me. I believe it may have been discontinued, so you might have to look for a used one…

It is still a current product:

Cambo CA-GFX Canon EF Lens to Fujifilm G Camera Adapter

This is based on the same mechanism that works with the Cambo WRS shift cameras and also the Cambo Actus view cameras, but in a direct mount for Fuji (they also make a direct Canon lens mount to Hasselblad X1D/X2D).

There are plenty for the X1D so I would be surprised if they didn't exist for the GFX. Try Kipon and Techart.
