  1. X-T2 autofocus problems

    thats why i had. Again, just send it in for repair, and save you some forum time =)
  2. X-T2 autofocus problems

    its a litte different. with canon, WHEN the Af locked, then it was in focus. So the Camera didnt fool itself and/or me. With my XT2 sample, that happened. Confirmed AF lock was wrong in 25-30%. That is a different story now, isnt it?? What did i prove? Then take the distance indicator, which jumps around from 3 m to infinite on a very clear object. Its just a big malfunction, isnt it. And about those custumor errors and expectations: i just want my camera not to lie to me, plain and simple. Its ridiculous to explain this. So: The Canon AF (up to the 5D Mark II) had its weaknesses, but didnt lie. Not to this extent. Lets keep the problems specific.
  3. X-T2 autofocus problems

    dont know Artuk but i can tell you that my brand new XT2 had 25% blurred images with 3 lenses, with very considerately chosen high contrast motifs. So no bullshit or silly things like AF box too big (it was small) or whatever. Just no excuses really. They fixed it without admitting so. Gave me some BS back "the lens is the problem not the cam". Well, it was the camera. Never had similar issues with the (pertty bad) AF on the Canon 5DII, just to mention that.
  4. X-T2 autofocus problems

    what? No, a blurred image has nothing to do with writing on the card. That would look like wild color artefacts or something.. I also had my green indicator always okay, while 25% were blurred, so its definately a defect, send it in!
  5. X-T2 autofocus problems

    JPaul you should definately send it in!
  6. X-T2 autofocus problems

    oh my sounds awful. Sounds like they dont test the gear after assembling it. Note that the 18-55 has many bad samples. I returned 2, before i got a sharp one. Now i'm very happy, because it is way sharper than the heavy old canon 24-70. Also note that the 18-55 has quite some field curvature, look it up on photozone.de. If you want the Fuji system, or those features (....) then it might be worth while having the camera serviced - in my case they resolved the focus issues. Cost me months of anger, but hey, also had quite a few terrible experiences with Canon "repairs". I sure hope they improve big time..
  7. X-T2 autofocus problems

    did you switch to "film based" instead of "pixel based". That makes way more sense! right, my thoughts exactly. I asked the Service guy, but they just do not bother to answer.. So poor.
  8. X-T2 autofocus problems

    Hi razibus, sorry to hear that. You should really have it serviced. I sent my cam in, and they said "AF adjusted as a precaution, however it should be a lens problem not a camera problem." That's BS, since i had the blurry pics with 3 lenses! However, they seem to have fixed the problem, i have very few blurry pics now. I guess they do not admit that something was worng with the new camera, they just fix it silently. But the focus indicator is still sometimes random, jumps between 2m and infinite. I talked to the service guy and his boss on the phone, and they seem to run a denial policy. Its really really frustrating experience because they express thorough indifference. Not a word of "sorry for the inconvenience", no nothing. He blathered about 20% around the AF field being taken into account, thus possible focus indicator jumps. What he said was "well, its not a digital inch rule, but rather a indicator for DOF." I asked back, but DOF depends directly on the distance, so a DOF indicator with wrong distance makes no sense. Now they just did not respond. So i guess they have problems (MAYBE ONLY SOME COPIES??) but wont say so. Gonna wirte a letter to Japan HQ i guess, because they should take their custumers seriously, especially working pros relying on their gear. The service i experienced so far is unacceptable.
  9. X-T2 autofocus problems

    thanks, yes i had the new firmwares
  10. X-T2 autofocus problems

    Yeah.. I am familiar with general DOF rules. But this is about AF acurracy here =). If i point the camera at a tree, then it's about that tree being in focus, not 1/3 stuff =)
  11. X-T2 autofocus problems

    this sky is certainly not very bright, so that should be no issue yeah, but i'd just expect it to work decently on contrasty objects now, come on
  12. X-T2 autofocus problems

    I also had this problem with the 35 f2. Which really is not wide. Well, and i didn't have such crass problems with the Canon 5D II and 6D - about which they all say, that Fuji AF is on par with, or better ...So it looks like fine structures require manual focus. Unheard of, to this extent. Which really really sucks. i mean, never autofocus on woods? Frightening if you ask me. Didnt consider these branches to cause delicate issues, i mean come on. A camera chould be able to tell that blurr from sharpness. If it finds it once, it should always find it. oh boy it was Off. But anyway, at 1/1000 sec, if that would be a problem, THEN we really would have a problem.
  13. X-T2 autofocus problems

    thanks Vic. I don't know the details of the AF System. But no AF can usually focus on the sky, there's no contrast. So any system will pick what it will find, that being twigs/branches here, very distinct. And it does "find" them, very quickly. Just very erratic und inaccurate, which is weird, because the contrast is pretty high. Also had that problem with contrasty mountain pictures. I should note the Distance to the trees is about 70 meters, so it does not have to decide between close/distant branches. I mean in this case, the trees as an object are rather 2-dimensional than 3-dimensional. I do have a few shots that are very sharp at 24 mm! 18-55, yes its regarded rather good. Still lots of complsints about many samples. And since i tested 2 copies here, it is very weird how much the sharpness differs between them - depending on focal length, and position in the frame. On is a lefty, one is a righty, so to say. Heavily off centre, to say the least. Attached, 2 samples of the 18-55 in comparison. It's the right border (on the left the other sample is slightly better, but okay-ish with both). Tripod setup, yeah. While a remote shutter should not be a point at 1/1000-2000s like i used. regards, huck
  14. X-T2 autofocus problems

    I'm having the same problem. Two problems, that is: 18-55 seems to be very strongly varyying quality between the copies. The first i bought was totally soft, really rubbish. How did that ever pass the test, i have no idea. Repaired twice, still bad. Exchange lens still very soft - on one side. Now my dealer offered me his demo lens, because i had tested it as very sharp at 18mm. But at 55, it's also weak, on the left side. So...the 18-55 lens seems to have many severe problems. Big shame on Fuji, from my experiences so far. Autofocus XT-2. I got many blurry images. So, set it on a tripod, with the 10-24. At 24 mm i get many blurry images. The AF is very inaccurate or erratic. I will have it repaired/exchanged, and HOPE there's a fix. I'm wondering if maybe the AF System can not "see" fine structures, like fine branches, even though high contrast against the sky. That would be serious problems with landscape photography...attached you see a 100% crop.
