    Hi Amin, I admit I am toying with the speedbooster idea. In particular my 50mm Sonnar would be great at its own focal length. My three R lenses are all Leitaxed, by the way and usually live on my FM3a :)

    I think they CAN, but I need more practice... I deliberately hand held because that is how I use my cameras. Lesson 1 is technique is as important as technology.

    How many different adapters are available for legacy glass to fuji x? It seems like if one had a lot of old lenses, that would be the way to go provided there are adapters available.

    I'm not sure, but it does seem the way to go. There are some great mf lenses out there at amazing prices, still.

    Sony NEX has traditionally been THE cameras for legacy lenses due to the focus peaking feature, but any mirrorless camera will allow the use of non-native lenses with adapters due to the reduced flange distance of the lens mounts.

    GXR here, until recently. The Sonys were an ergonomic disaster for me I'm afraid - more gadget than camera.
