Launched at The Photography Show this weekend, this lens allows to get the look of one of the classic compact cameras from the 1980s on your Fujfilm X-mount mirrorless camera. The Minox 35 GT was a highly-successful pocket 35mm film camera, with a fold-down lens that was loved by photographers looking for a quality, pocketable camera. And now MS Hobbies is bringing the Color-Minotar 35mm f/2.8 lens from this analog camera to the digital camera user. The adapted lens is already available in Leica M and Sony FE mounts - but is now will be produced for the Fujifilm X-mount.
The small lens will give an effective focal length of around 52mm when used on a Fujifilm X-mount camera.
MS Hobbies are specialists at selling, repairing, and providing supplies for the Minox camera range. You can get a serviced Minox 35 GT from them from £140 upwards - and the iconic Minox spy camera for anything from £100 to £900, depending on the color and the condition. It can also provide film and processing for the sub-miniature spy camera format - including offering a DIY film cutter that will adapt a 35mm roll down to the 8x11mm size used.
The new Fujifilm X-Mount Minox lens will retail for £140 (around US$162).
