Fotodiox Pro introduces the DLX Stretch lens mount adapters, a versatile new series of 24 lens adapters for mirrorless cameras—Sony E-mount, Fujifilm X-mount and Micro Four Thirds mirrorless bodies.
A 3-in-1 imaging tool, the “Stretch” in the product name refers to the adapters’ built-in extension tube, which allows photographers to lengthen the adapter for close-focus or macro photography. Additionally, both modern and vintage lenses can be mounted to 8 different lens mounts—Canon EOS, Canon FD, Contax/Yashica, Leica R, Minolta MD, Nikon, Olympus ZUIKO (OM) and Pentax K—and the adapter’s rear section holds drop-in magnetic neutral-density filters. The kit includes ND4, ND8 and ND16 glass filters with a leather case. To accommodate lenses without an aperture control ring, certain DLX Stretch models feature additional aperture control.
Here’s a Fotodiox Pro video of the DLX Stretch lens mount adapter with Sony cameras.
Priced at $129.95 each, the DLX Stretch lens mount adapters are available for order on the Fotodiox Pro website’s Lens Mount Adapter page.

Fotodiox Pro Launches Multi-Functional DLX Stretch Lens Adapters
Fotodiox Pro, creator and distributor of several lines of specialty solutions for videography, cinematography and photography, has announced a brand new addition to their extensive collection of innovative lens adapters: The DLX Stretch, a new series of 24 multi-function lens adapters for Sony E-Mount, Fuji X-Mount and Micro Four-Thirds mirrorless cameras.
The DLX Stretch is the latest in Fotodiox’s ongoing commitment to creating and manufacturing the largest and most flexible library of lens adapters in the photo and cinema industry. Each DLX Stretch packs three levels of creative functionalty into a single lens adapter. Vintage and modern lenses can be mounted via eight different lens mounts. A built-in helicoid allows adjustment of the overall length of the adapter for close-focus macro style shooting or backfocus adjustment. Plus, the specially-designed rear section of the DLX Stretch houses drop-in magnetic Neutral Density filters. Each kit includes ND4, ND8, and ND16 glass filters in a leather case.
“When we created the DLX Stretch, we set out to “stretch” what shooters expect from a lens adapter,” said Bohus Blahut, marketing director for Fotodiox Pro. “Today’s mirrorless cameras are amazing, but they suffer from too few native lens choices. The DLX Stretch adapters bring those choices back. Additionally, the DLX Stretch offers amazing imaging flexibility with its built-in macro-focusing helicoid as well as our revolutionary drop-in filter system for rapid-fire filter changes. With DLX Stretch lens adapters, you can get more done with a single lens than ever before.”
DLX Stretch adapters are available for the following lens mounts: Canon EOS, Canon FD, Contax/Yashica, Leica R. Minolta MD, Nikon, Olympus Zuiko (OM), and Pentax K. Select models of the DLX Stretch also include additional aperture control for lenses that lack an aperture control ring. They are available now at FotodioxPro.com.
