    • A magical day filled with tall trees, amazing rock formations, wonderful fall colors, and abundant water burbling in the creek. The stillness and deep connections with nature were, as always, inspiring and uplifting.

      I considered my decision to buy an X100F for a couple of months before ordering up.

      The one I received yesterday is clearly defective.

      It indicates focus on an infinity-distant target but is very, very  unsharp.

      It also seems to exhibit a left/right focus disparity, difficult to confirm given the nature

      of my primary complaint.  

      Withal, I can't really see myself re-investing in the model.

      My X100S is nothing short of amazing in terms of sharpness a unique visual quality of its JPEGS,

      As a non-pro, I will certainly never need the file sizes possible with 24Mpx.

      It;s Friday;i will spend most of the weekend shooting and scrutinizing the bad results.

       

      Sounds like the camera has some problems with lens alignment (if the images do not show equivalent sharpness left to right).

      I hope you bought it from an understanding dealer who will refund or replace it?

      Hi All, I just noticed that when shooting video, with 18-55 on XT2, the footage will be out of focus WHEN zooming in and out in the fast manner, focus mode set on MANUAL, focus sharp before zooming. No problem when zooming slowly. Any one encounter this issue? Please advice, thanks.

      p.s. went to the fuji showroom to try another XT-2, XT-20 and X-E3 all having this focus problem.

      Generally, you cannot manually focus and then zoom - only lenses made specifically for video work ("par focal" lenses) will maintain a consistent focus ring position when zooming.  Most stills photo lenses will shift their focus whilst zooming ("vari focal" lenses) when manually focused - you should zoom to your required focal length and THEN focus manually.  The speed of zooming should make no difference. 

       

      Or use AF - but when you zoom, the camera will need to re-focus, so continuous focus mode is required - in single focus mode, if you have already pre-focused with a half press of the shutter and THEN zoom, you will get the same problem as with manual focusing: out of focus images.

      Do you perhaps have spot metering selected and in the menus another setting to combine AE spot metering with the focus point?

      The shouldn't really be driving ISO very high, with a high-ish shutter speed, and producing "correct" exposures. 

      If spot metering was biasing the exposure incorrectly, I would expect the results to be dramatically over exposed (due to dark spot meter area making the exposure very bright by using high ISO).
