Fringer, who already makes the world first Fuji X – Contax N smart adapter, has good news for Fujifilm GFX 50s owners: it’s a great camera for smart adapters!
They say that the GFX mount is obviously designed for working with electronic adapters and there shouldn’t be “any technical difficulties that prevent a smart adapter from working on GFX mount.” The G and XF mount design share a lot in common.
No PDAF, though, means that the AF performance probably won’t be that good.
Contax 645 lenses are very good candidates that may work full automatically on GFX50s. Now I have finished the first version of C645-GFX auto adapter’s design. There would be a fully functional prototype in 1 or 2 months if everything going OK during the development.
