Fringer EF/FX Smart Adapters Firmware 2.4 Optimized for Fujifilm X-T3 Released

Fringer has just released version 2.4 or their EF/FX smart adapters, optimized for Fujifilm X-T3.

Full Release Notes

Fujifilm X-T3 got much improved AF performance. I found it’s so far the best X camera that can use adapted EF mount lenses. Now all its full sensor covered PDAF points are supported. And as the low light AF capability has been improved to -3EV, AF successful rate got greatly improved. Meanwhile, WIDE/TRACKING mode and FACE/EYE focus are all works much better. Please watch this demo video.

The improvements of V2.40 firmware includes

  1. For Fujifilm X-T3 (and all coming cameras with X-Trans IV CMOS), we have optimized PDAF performance of all the lenses (on the tested and optimized lens list). Now you can leverage its full sensor coverage PDAF focus points and get improved AF performance.
  2. Added following lenses to the tested and optimized lens list:
    1. Tamron SP 70-200/2.8 Di VC USD G2
    2. Sigma 70-200/2.8 EX DG HSM OS
    3. Sigma 70-200/2.8 EX DG HSM OS + EF 1.4X II
    4. Sigma 70-200/2.8 EX DG HSM OS + EF 2X II
    5. Tokina ATX 11-16/2.8 PRO DX (I & II)

Fringer’s Contax 645 – GFX smart adapter

Fringer’s Contax 645 – GFX smart adapter is finally ready for demo. You can see pictures of the prototpye as well videos and samples images below. (Arca quick release compatible) tripod mount included.

Additional information

GFX50s doesn’t support PDAF while Contax 645 lenses are designed for PDAF. Thus, it is extremely difficult to let those lenses AF fast and accurately on GFX50s. Two weeks ago I thought 140/2.8 would never AF properly on GFX50s. But finally I made it work just like the 45/2.8 and 35/3.5 do. However, their AF performance will never be comparable to native G mount lenses.

I have to emphasize AF is an experimental function of the adapter, on current stage at least. Don’t expect them perform like on a SLR. If AF performance can’t satisfy you, MF is always available. In the future, maybe a GFX body with PDAF support will come out and finally save us.

So far I only have one prototype in hand. In a month or so there will be a small batch of products ready for beta tests. Thus, don’t ask me where to buy it now.
Test shots

Following test shots were all taken by myself with AF on.”
