The more i use the Vertex Rotating adapter with Pentax 6x7 lenses - I am aweare of that those 3-4 decade old lenses simply cannot compete with modern, Fujinon GF lenses, designed especially for their GFX cameras.

However, the Vertex Rotating adapter method gives an unique ability to bring the look of real 6x7 photography, its lenses to the digital world. Since you get nearly / exactly the same view of using a Pentax 6x7 camera, only now it is fully digital !

That is what makes it so special in my opinion. All manual operation, like before.

When it is about the 6x6 or 6x7 looks - think of the OVERALL look in the images. Not the 100% view at pixel level. The letter will disappoint and can not compete with modern lenses. But the overall image, gives a flair of what ones used to be film based 6x6 and 6x7 medium format photography with film.


Mainly for 6x6 / 6x7 aficionadoes only

I guess, this Vertex technique is mainly for classic 6x7 and 6x6 aficionados, bringing that old flair into the digital world. A bridge between film based and digital based photography. It isn't for people who like super resolution, super everything á lá the modern digital style.

Only native Fujifilm G lenses can do that on Fuji GFX cameras. Perhaps even a couple adapted lenses (of other brands, with enough enlarged image circle to cover the native GFX 44x33 mm sensor which is larger than fullframe)


I bought the Vertex - Fuji GFX - Pentax 6x7 lens adapter

Somebody in France put the rotating Vertex adapter out on eBay, which is exactly the one, for adapting Pentax 6x7 lenses onto a Fujifilm GFX camera. The price was almost half that of a new one. So, 280 € instead of 485 €. I thought, it was a good opportunity - because that special adapter isn't going to get any cheaper, nor is it readily available in Europe. (the adapter is US made)


Very weak Swedish Krona (currency)

Especially not with the sinking Swedish Krona, which just seem to loose more and more value. That is not a good thing for Sweden... It appears as if it will soon approaches 1 Euro = 13 SEK

It used to be 1 Euro = 8.5 SEK. That is an immense difference and not good for Swedish citizens, who seem having to pay the bill as prices rise further. Such a weak currency imports further inflation.
