Guys, I am thinking of getting a XE2S to use with my Voigt lenses (PKA). How many inches does a PK to Fuji X adpater add on to the lens? Know of a brand that ensures 1:1 magnification? Thanks!
My adapters are all branded K&F Concept - they're Chinese and well-built. I'd guess the K ones add a little under an inch to the length.

I guess I can join this now. Recently bought a mn XT10 second hand that came with the 18-55mm and 28mm lenses.

Well officially I bought it for my 9yo daughter. But it certainly is a nice little camera.

I'm sure you'll like it. I assume you mean the 27mm f/2.8 as I don't think there isa 28mm lens. The 27mm looks likea very nice little pancake lens.

The 27 is a greatly under appreciated lens , I get why, when it's being compare with the 35 1.4 and 23 1.4 on either side in the lineup it suffers a bit by comparison. But it's generally razor sharp just lacking in some of the pixie dust the other two have (and of course is slow at 2.8)
My favourite combo is the xpro and the 18 and 27 for walkabout though , perfect street setup.

Your daughter is quite lucky (if she can get it away from you) the 18-55 I've been thinking about buying , I tried it but bought all primes initially. It is a very good lens well above the average kit zoom in build and performance. I bought the xc zooms so my wife could commandeer my xe2 (which is why I ended up with my xpro, I can't get the xe2 away from her )

I am really considering Fuji right now, support is great here in the Philippines and the advantage of availability of lenses (albeit a expensive) is really XF 23/2 WR for the win.

I recently spontaneously acquired a X100 from the first generation, since I love the 35mm perspective. However, I already own the Olympus 17mm F1.8 and Voigtlaender 17.5mm F0.95, but the latter is manual and heavy, and the former provides not enough shallow DOF. Also, I wanted to try the OVF. So far I am quite happy, although the X100 is far from snappy. Let's see how this story continuous....
