Mitakon Zhongyi Lens Turbo Adapter V2
My Lens Turbo II finally arrived after being on backorder for a few weeks now. Thankfully I live in Asia, so it arrived a bit sooner than if I was back in the States. Im having my best friend visiting me this summer here in Penang, and we are traveling to Thailand, and Cambodia to eat amazing food, and do some epic photography. He's bringing my manual focus lens collection that I left back in the States... Its a Pelican Roller case, filled with some classic manual focus primes ( fixed focal length lenses ) Right now I will just have to stare at the Lens Turbo II, and dream of using it this July. The Lenses I plan on using it with are my Leica 50mm Summicron f2, Leica Summicron 90mm f2, Zeiss 35mm f2.8 T*, Zeiss 50mm f1.4 T*, Zeiss 180 F2.8 T*, as well as Nikon Ais 55mm f2.8 Mirco, Nikon 85mm f2, 105mm f2.5 lenses. I plan on doing a write up on each of these lenses later this summer and autumn. I converted my Leica Lenses to Nikon mount, as well as my Zeiss Lenses, so the Lens Turbo II I purchased is a Nikon to Fuji X mount. It simplified my kit to change the mounts on everything to one mount ( Nikon to Fuji X), as the Lens Turbo II are $150 each, so I figured rather than buy 4 Turbo's id buy one, and do the mechanics myself by changing the metal mounts on each of these lenses, over to Nikon F mount. The parts to do these changes can be found on the inner webs...and for quite cheap too. Just be sure to get brass/aluminum models, as they will last longer, not corrode, and they just plain fit better.
Who would have thought 10 years ago about shooting a Leica, or Zeiss lens on a digital Fuji body, technology sure can be a lot of fun!
