    Had a cracking time over the last few days on the TP Glen Coe meet. Here's a few of my edits completed so far (though admittedly more than some aren't actually in Glen Coe)!

    Really nice, must crack out my rings more often (giggity). The few times I have usually led to something great, not paired them much with the 35mm though.

    Cheers. Same here, do forget I have them at times.

    Mine are the cheap as chips ones from amazon - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B014EV2HGU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I wonder is it worth getting the official Fuji ones? As mine refuse to fit onto any adapters, which is a shame because I'd love to try them with my MF lenses. For the money though, these ones do give you full AF, and all CPU data, just like the Fuji ones. They're just a bit fiddly to get on and off and like I say, don't seem to like adapters.

    The Fooj rings won't be any different Sir, the way I use my MF (ie Nikon) lenses with tubes/rings is to put an Ai-FX adapter on the camera then a Nikon fit tube/ring on that and then the MF lens on the front of that. Obviously everything is manual or aperture priority exposure but TTL flash works a treat. Most of my Macro/Close-Up shots on this thread have been done using this set up.(y)

    No I just popped to MB World for a couple of hours to have a play with the XT-2, 50-140 + TC as i'm attending a motorsport event in a couple of weeks time and wanted to have a practice. Sadly not a lot going on on their small track but got some shots on the drifting circle.

    Saw some lovely Mini's coming out of Brooklands.

    It doesn't make any sense though. I mean, the adapter I have is M42 to Fuji X, the adapter fits perfectly on the camera mount, as does the macro ring. The macro ring attaches fine to Fuji lenses, you'd think the adapter would also fit onto the rings then?

    Do the adapters not physically fit into the tubes then? That's bizarre. You could of course just buy some cheap M42 tubes if this is the case. Mine were a fiver i think.

    Yeah, the Fuji X mount of the adapter won't fit to the rings, which is odd. Might just be the adapter I have, must have a search to see if anyone is trying same around online

    Just tried my new Fuji to Nikon adapter with extension tubes and Nikon 50mm F1.8D

    How big is the image and how little depth of field?

    George, is your Nikon micro lens the 105mm f2.8D?

    I'm looking into getting one for my XT2 now I have the adapter.

    Hi Stephen. It's at Finnich Glen, just five minutes from Drymen.

    Bit of a clamber down but totally worth it!

    I have the same as you... they do fit my adapters... although everytime I use them I think I am going to break something as there is a point you have to go past to get them on...they come off easier.

    Try SRB photographic for adapters

    I have a K&F concept adapter for Nikon to Fuji, but no Nikon lenses left to use it :D It was working great though with my sigma 150mm macro. But I never tried it with extension rings.

    The M42 to Fuji adapter I have fits the 3 old MF lenses I own, and mounts to both the Xpro1 and the XT-1, which is why I'm puzzled. The macro ring fits both mounts also, but will not fit the adapter. Baffling. Oh well, it works great with the 35 1.4 anyway, and I get AF and all the cpu data so even at that it was worth the few quid. I might try a K&F m42 to fuji, nothing to lose really. If it still doesn't allow the M42 lenses fit the macro rings, I'll have an extra one to leave on one of the lenses anyway, for quicker switch overs.

    "CHUFFED AGAIN" as this shot made "Flickr Explore" on the 18th March. Apparently it is the third snap of mine to make it within a month according to the link that @Cagey75 posted saying how to check it out. Bit like the buses really nothing for ages then three come along almost together.:D:D

    Just a candid street style shot taken at Canterbury of a young man with his Guitar doing a bit of street playing.
