I've read (even from sellers descriptions) that "normal" S to FX adapters can't be used on wide angle lenses. On the other hand, Amedeo adapter to Leica M apparently allow 35mm 2.5 and so a further M to FX adapter could solve this.
My questions: is this two adapter combination the only solution? It is a very expensive solution. I also have the 50mm 1.4, so that would only be adaptable with an Amedeo, but at this point this is not my main goal.
Thanks in advance for any input!
You can always go primitive and make an adapter from a spare Fujifilm X pro body cap. Find the sensor to lens distance needed for proper registration for that lens and work from there by cutting and gluing a proper section of right diameter PVC pipe (that will also fit the lens) to the drilled out body cap. It will not be super critical work, as you are not using a mechanical rangefinder to focus on the Fujifilm camera sensor plane.
* A donor parts Kiev RF camera from Ebay sellers will probably give you the outside bayonet mount for the S Nikkor 3.5 cm lens if you want to get more elaborate and don't mind spending a bit more.
