300mm Nikon Lens on Fujifilm X-T30

300mm Nikon Lens on Fujifilm X-T30

Here’s an experiment with an old manual focus 70-300mm zoom Nikon lens on the Fujifilm X-T30 mirrorless camera.

I was given this lens as a gift in 1995, (I think) and although it’s slow (max f/4) it’s quite a good lens. The light was failing when this image was made, around 5.30pm, so the ISO was 6400, making the image grainy. I extended the lens to 300mm and shot a photo of this bush at f/4 – 1/250th sec.

I needed to keep the ISO high and shutter speed short to eliminate lens shake.  Overall though, I see possibilities for this combination.
