If the X adapter allows the X1D to trigger an H series lens, and the CF adapter allows an H series camera to utilise a V series lens then logically surely adding the CF adapter to the X adapter would work - but apparently not. Actually I can't see that I would have much use for such a cumbersome system, but I am interested in the explanation as to why it won't work.
If the Fall firmware update really does bring an electronic shutter. then manufacturing a V adapter ought to become relatively simple - simple enough for one of the third-party adapter manufacturers to be able to do it. You might not be able to use the shutter in a CF lens, but at least you'd have an upgrade path.
