Asked by: Rana
Yes, the Opteka 35mm f/1.7 Lens for Fujifilm X is compatible for use with the FUJIFILM X-T3 Mirrorless Digital Camera. Do note that this is a manual focus lens, so you will have to focus the lens manually and set the aperture of the lens using the aperture ring built onto the lens, not the control dials on the camera.

Will it work for Lumix G7?
Asked by: Anonymous
Bought mine for a Canon M5. Returned it because it would not allow the shutter to operate. Also it would bind so badly when being removed I was fearful of damaging the camera body. Very disappointing product.

question

Opteka 35mm f/1.7 Lens for Canon EF-M , I connected this lens to my camera but I could'nt click my shutter?
Asked by: renjish S.
Since the lens has no electronics your camera likely doesnt realize theres a lens attached. there should be a setting somewhere that overrides that.try googling your camera model and no lens shutter override .
