Today I popped over to a local dealer and decided to try out two Leica lenses on the X-Pro1. I had them to test for a couple hours around Madison Square Park.
I know that enough has been written about this combo so I'd like to briefly suggest a workflow for making photos with the lenses on the X-Pro1 with the Fujifilm M Mount adapter.
Once you attach the lens make sure you set the camera to manual focus. This isn't mandatory for the lens - but to activate the focus magnifying feature which is essential if you are going to focus with the EVF which is how I used it.
Then push the menu activation button on the M adapter and the menu pops up to enter the focal length of M lens you are using. I switched between 21 and 35 and it's quick and easy.
Don't get distracted by the Aperture saying 0.
I would also suggest you shoot in Spot metering mode (salt as you like).
Take a few shots of a simple subject and decide if you need any lens adjustments. Like vignetting or color cast. These choices are included nicely in the lens menu screen activated by the M adapter.
Have fun with it and good shooting!
