Nikon To Fuji Adapter?

But wait, there’s more! In another post from Fuji Rumors, it looks like Fringer is currently developing a Nikon F to Fujifilm X Smart Lens Adapter. In the video below you can see the first engineering sample and how it works as a prototype for the Nikon To Fuji systems.

Reportedly, it supports electronic aperture control for D, G, and E lenses as well as autofocus for AF_S and AF-P lenses! I don’t know about you, but it’s pretty exciting for me to see all of these cross-brand adapters showing up on the market making it easier for uses to move from system to system so they can cater exactly to their needs without having to invest massive amounts of money re-acquiring lenses and accessories.

The adapter is still under development so the time to market is still not known, but if the progress in this video is to believed, here’s hoping we’ll see something more concrete by the holiday season!

So what do you think? are these rumors interesting or exciting to you? Do you think any will come to light before the end of the year? Let us know in the comments below.
