Photographer Jon Asrask discovered that many Minolta lenses have large enough image circle to cover the Fuji GFX medium format sensor. Sounds eerily similar to repeating the EMount mirrorless adapting vintage lens craze. I think the photos are lovely.

Cool thing it's not just Minolta MD lenses, where you can use Fotodiox MD adapter. Seems Fotodiox also makes a fine looking MA to GX adapter too.

What lenses would you like to see adapted to Fuji GFX? Which lenses would you imagine to work better or worse with the larger sensor size?

For A mount lenses I'd like to see what long lenses look like - 200/300/2.8, 80-200 or beercan. Obviously the Zeiss 135 (but I doubt the image circle on the new lenses make it that far).

I'm sure the f2 trinity has the resolution; the Secret Handshake would be something as medium format super zoom (plus it has a close focus macro switch!)!

He got the greatest hits of the MD lenses, except 17mm, and the 24s (maybe the 24 VFC would have a more obvious effect with more sensor real estate?).

I have a MC 200/3.5 QF that cleans up real nice by moving a couple sliders, even wide open ... That on a bigger sensor would be a very interesting test.

I would expect some of the zooms to be okay toward their longest end.
A900, A58, 5d, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras . . .
