I love the Fuji S5 I have and use Nikon lenses. Any chance there is a conversion to use Zeiss glass on my fuji ? Any way to get a Zeiss lense to work on my Fjui S5 ? that would be awesome. thanks, rollsman

ZF lenses from Zeiss themselves are your best bet, but unfortunately we are not aware of any other conversions which would fit a Zeiss on a Nikon F mount.

Sometimes the technical difficulty is film to flange distance. In the case of the Contax N mount the difficulty is not being able control an electromagnetic diaphragm because the Fuji S5 controls the aperture with a mechanical lever.
