Fuji Unveils M-Mount Adapter for the X-Pro1

Fuji M-Mount Adapter for X-Pro1

Fuji had previously said it would bring an Leica M-Mount adapter to the X-Pro1 and, today, Fuji made good on that promise with the announcement of the $200 Fuji-labeled M-Mount adapter.

The camera side of the M-Mount Adapter features an array of electronic connections that automatically pass information to the FUJIFILM X-Pro1 body based on pre-registered lens profiles. With firmware version 1.10 or later, this information is transmitted by pressing the Function button on the side of the adapter, which allows users to access the M-Mount Adapter Settings menu on the rear LCD.

The adapter will be available in June.  Check availability at B&H Photo.
