FujiFilm X-T1 with the Leica 75mm Summarit


The Leica 75mm Summarit (Version I) has and equivalent focal length of approximately 113mm on the Fuji X-T1. For a Leica lens it is a relative bargain and is often found on the used market around $1000. It is extremely compact for this focal length and built like all other Leica lenses, solid.


For this test, I was using Fuji’s M Mount Adapter on the X-T1. Among the many reason I like this adapter, one that stands out for me is the ability to have some exif data embedded with each file so that when I’m in LR I can sort my images by lenses. The ‘dumb’ adapter for as little as $10 do not have the electronic connection with the body and will work properly, but will fail to give you any other data. I’ll write more about the other advantages of Fuji’s adapter later.


For now, please enjoy the series of photos from a local temple. All of the images were shot wide open at f2.5.
