yes, that's why I don't think that 2/3" lenses, via an adapter, work that well to cover the wide focal lengths that you may need on a 1/2" chip camera. It's hard to get 4mm to 5mm equivalent angle of view from a 2/3" lens.

Exactly, while I was waiting for the Fuji 1/2 HS18X5.5BERM with 2X extender to be released Fuji lent me a 2/3 18X5.5 and my Sony dealer provided the adaptor. It was OK on the long end but shooting wide I found my self constantly backing up trying to get wide enough. I found it very frustrating to work with and would recommend trying it first if your thinking of going that way.

cheers
