    I`m curious,seeing that today`s Fuji system is so very popular
    and with good reason,whether lenses in my collection from those days of
    40+ years ago when I used Fuji bodies will physically mount onto
    today`s Fuji cameras.
    I`m just wondering if the Fuji mount has remained mechanically compatible
    with the mirrorless system.

    Thanks Pete.Maybe I`ll take a Fuji X lens to a shop to compare.

    The old Fuji lens won’t fit directly. You need an adaptor. I didn’t look to see who else made adaptors.

    I use Minolta MD lenses with an adaptor. The adaptor takes care of the difference in the mount shape/size and provides a location for the aperture control pin. Manual lenses have to used in stop-down mode, there is no way to activate the aperture control pin. Fortunately with electronic viewfinders you still get a visible image at F11 but you might find opening to full aperture makes manual focussing easier.

    The old lens won't focus on a mirrorless body without an adapter. Even if the actual bayonet fits, which I doubt.
