    Phase One XF with Schneider-Kreuznach 120mm TS issue?

    Hi there

    Just tried my Schneider-Kreuznach 120mm TS lens on my XF and it doesn't work.. ie the shutter doesn't fire.

    Are there any settings I need to change (as I see the lens is listed as still current, so should work I hope!)

    I also have an Ersat 30mm fisheye lens with manual aperture ring that won't work either. I presume the same issue, or maybe this old-school beauty just won't work.

    Anyone have any insight?

    Thanks muchly,

    Adam

    Maybe set the XF to "manual lens"?

    No thoughts on the 120 SK TS but the Ersatz probably needs to have the mount modded.

    See: What do you saw off older Mamiya lenses to fit on Phase XF body? :)

    Sorry, meant to get back and say thanks Bill.

    Yes, I just had to set the XF to "manual lens" and it worked with the TS lens and also the Ersat manual fisheye thing, no problems.

    RTFM, of course...

    But the most advanced camera in the world needing the user to dig into menus to select "manual lens" when you fit a current-range modern lens seems a bit of a faff....

    Perhaps in future when the camera obviously recognises the lens is a manual lens it could automatically select "manual lens" in its own menus without the user having to. Just a thought.
