Japan’s Rayqual, the latest company to dip into the promising waters of Fuji X-Pro 1 lens adapters, has just revealed nine new models for Fuji’s mirrorless interchangeable lens beauty, bringing a Leica M, Nikon F, Contax/Yashica, Canon FD, Pentax K, Olympus OM, M42, Leica R, and Kodak offering to the market as of today, April 12th, 2012.
In some quick news, Nikon is apparently set to announce a new mirrorless F-mount lens adapter that will “communicate auto focus information to drive the built-in motors in Nikon AF-S and AF-I lenses.” AF-I lenses are the older brother to the current AF-S system. It was introduced in 1992 and allowed for electronic auto focus communication between the camera and lens, a first for Nikon.
This new adapter would give the V1 and J1 the ability to even mount and auto focus that beautiful Nikon AF-S 200-400mm VR II (pictured above). Wouldn’t that be something! There is also some updated information regarding the video capabilities of the V1 and J1. Both camera will reportedly now have the ability to record in 1080p at 30fps and 720p at 60fps. Thanks to PhotographyBay and NikonRumors for all the updated information.
