Anyone here using Fujifilm X Pro or X-E1 and Samyang 7.5 for 360s? I'm currently using a Sony Nex5n with a Samyang 7.5 as my lightweight setup. I'm getting good results but I hate the ergonomics.

I used a fuji X-Pro1 with a Samyang 8mm F2.8 lens mounted to a NN RS-1/lens ring clamp (Samyang 8mm F2.8 for Fujifilm X-Mountl (F6223). I found that the long cable release that I was using damaged the threads in the shutter button.

I now use a Fuji X-E1 which is lighter than the X-Pro1 and supports a Fuji RR80 wired release or a JMK Radio Frequency Wireless Shutter for Fujifilm.

I find that the Samyang 8mm F2.8/ Fuji X-E1 is much lighter than my old Nikon D5100, Nikkor 10.5mm NN3 setup and produces as good if not better results.
