    The 18mm f2 is quite good and fast, I was wondering if anyone tried adapting this lens as it's close to the 35mm FOV which many prefer. It could be a nice alternative to Voigtlander 17mm f0.95 and the size isn't too bad as well.

    Anyone here has tried adapting any of the Fujinon lenses meant for Fuji X-Pro1? These lenses do have an aperture ring, so it should be fairly simple to adapt. Right?

    The flange back distance on the X mount is 17.7mm, which is shorter than :43:'s 19.25mm.

    And in any case, the aperture and focus rings are both by wire, not mechanical, so you'd need a full electronic adapter even if the flange distance did work.
