How to enable “Shoot without lens” on the X-Pro 2

This is a quick blog post that I hope helps someone out there.

Today I tried to use my Voigtländer 35mm 1.2 M-mount lens on the X-Pro 2 and no matter what I tried I couldn’t get it to fire,  nor could I find “Shoot without lens” (a setting necessary for shooting using 3rd party lenses on an adapter) anywhere obvious in the menu system.

After much head scratching,  I finally found it (it’s in the manual on page 112) hidden in the set up menu.

Here’s how to do it in pictorial form:

Conspiracy Time
I actually think this is a ploy to sell more official (and waaay too expensive)  official Fuji Fuji/M-mount adapters).  They want people to give up and just buy the adapter that automatically turns shoot without lens on.  Sneaky Fuji-San.
