Which adaptor did you get?
I've got the Fotodiox w/tilt&shift for putting my Mamiya 645 glass on that body. I believe they also make that adaptor for the P645 mount.
Still need to get used to it, and work with it more, but I'm liking it mostly for short lenses not long, 35mm and 80mm.
Also found a k-mount to Fuji G so I can put old M and K lenses on, in Pano mode, some not so nice vignetting at full frame.
Will look forward to some results of this Fuji/Pentax collaboration.

I have 17 P645 lenses and 13 P67 lenses + Pentax '67 to 645' adapter and I'm trying to streamline my travel kit for my 645Z. I mostly carry the DFA 55 mm f/2.8, the FA 120 mm f/4 Macro, the FA 200 mm f/4 and the FA* 300 mm f\4 + 1.4X teleconverter these days. Mostly landscape pictures on a Manfrotto 028 tripod.

Regards

I have tried three adapters: a cheap Chinese one from Ebay, the Fotodiox Pro, and the Kipon.
The cheap one was terrible.
The Fotodiox and Kipon are both fine, with no "play" and an aperture relay mechanism that works as it should. Each has its own (very minor) strengths and weaknesses, though.
I like the tripod foot on the Fotodiox, and the fact that the lenses mount and unmount very smoothly, with no friction. What I don't like about it is that it is ever so slightly too short, which throws the calibrated infinity stop on some of the A lenses out of whack (they now focus a little "beyond" infinity).
The Kipon seems to be the exact correct length, and its finish is marginally more "premium". However, when mounting the lenses, a little more force needs to be applied, which is indicative of some unnecessary friction and potentially added wear and tear.
