Buying the 500 € Finger Pro adapter, in order to adapt Canon EF lenses onto Fuji GFX, appears having been a really wise decision.

It just works flawless.

Even the handling of the adapter itself, is pro quality. The way you use the release knob in order to take off a lens. The feeling when adapting the adapter onto the camera - without scruffy feeling. Or adapting the lens, for that matter - all smooth - without any play in between.

Just smooth and very precise everything.

I love it.

I do not regret to have bought the much cheaper Andoer adapter. For aperture control as well adapting lenses - it was good, given that the price was just 113 €. (I will now send it back to China, though)


If you want a better standard in AF and enabling IBIS

However, as soon your demands increase, such as having support of Fujifilm's internal IBIS with EF lenses, then the Finger is the adapter to have. Now all Canon EF lenses are supported (basically) with IBIS. And it helps given the large sensor... how easily it is to shake an exposure without IBIS with such a (more) demanding sensor, compared to all my other cameras with far less Megapixels (often just 20 MP).

Focus speed don't seem to differ between the two adapters.

It is a Fujifilm GFX 50 contrast CDAF thing, which is on the slow side by nature. Faster AF you only get with the Fuji GFX 100s and GFX 100 II cameras, due to the newer 102 MP sensor which all have support of PDAF (pixels on sensor that are especially made for autofocus, which the much older 51 MP sensor lacks).

The lenses lenses that didn't work well with the Andoer adapter, now work well with the Finger Pro. However, if you do manual focus, almost every Canon EF lens worked with the Andoer adapter (except the EF 35/2 IS, as well the Sigma ART 70/2.8 Macro was a bit iffy, too).

For manual focus the Andoer is good.

Just keep an eye on that sometimes wrong lens profiles are attached - which can twist things. But if you want a very good, more professional adapter - The Finger Pro is the only one that actually works well. Which many other users in various forums have stated plenty of times. I can only agree.

So, i am very, very pleased. Really, truly.

Despite the high price - i think this adapter working so well, is also giving opportunity to use Canon EF lenses on Fuji GFX cameras. Some of them works actually splendid - while others give dark corners, or even hard corner shading.


"Spiral II"

So, here i used the same spiral motive - with the Fuji GFX 50s II in one shot mode with 51 MP (no Vertex adapter), BUT THIS TIME, the Sigma ART 70mm f 2.8 Macro lens, used wide open at ƒ2.8 - and cropped down to 40 MP to simulate the "6x6" format.

Works, too, you know.

Of course the micro sharpness has a finer definition in the tiniest details compared to the older Pentax 67 SMC 135/4 Macro lens, because the Sigma ART is a modern digital lens. I am very happy, that i can use it on a digital Medium Format Camera.

That is really a fantastic bonus !!


I have not tried out focus bracketing

- and no not know if this works with Sigma / Canon adapted AF lenses. This technique with focus stacking out of a bunch focus stacked images (via apps like Zerene Stacker) - would for example increase the depth of sharpness in the main object - while the remains fuzzy and smooth.
