Pentax Medium Format lenses for the Fujifilm GFX 100s
PENTAX 645 lenses on the FujIfilm GFX cameras
I continue to explore additional lenses for the GFX system that can be used a shift lens via adapters. Alen Koppe, an Australian fine-art photographer suggested using the Pentax 645 lenses on the Fujifilm GFX cameras.
The Pentax 35mm for their 645 cameras is an excellent lens, and it is my first non-Fujifilm medium format lens.
I purchased the lens from JF Camera in Tokyo. I found the best places to purchase mint Pentax 645 lenses and for that matter, large format Fujinon lenses, are dealers in Japan. It is in close-to-mint condition, and I am testing it this week with a Kipon Pentax 645 to FujiFilm GFX adapter.
James Caulfield, a architectural photographer in Chicago has done extensive testing with Schenider/Leica and Hasselblad lenses on the GFX system. He raves about the 28mm Leica/Schneider shift lens on the GFX.
I hope, that one day, sooner rather than later, that Fujifilm will make a tilt/shift lens. So far, the Nikon, Canon and now Pentax lenses will fill the void. However, to have a lens designed for a 102 megapixel sensor with be a welcome addition to my lens collection.
