  1. Have you tried setting a fixed aperture like f/5.6 and letting the shutter speed to A? That mode is commonly called "aperture priority" because the aperture is set and the shutter speed "floats" as required by the aperture. That would be a good start to help us help you.

    18-55 2.8/4 Lens Creep

    I haven't noticed this with my 18-55. if did I don't really think I would be very concerned about it.

    X-T20 is on its way

    My first X-lens was the 18-55, and my experience with it is the same as veejaycee's. I was surprised by how good it is, in my view clearly better than the common 3:1 zoom. I like my XT20 very much too.

    Pescadero Cliffs

    Very nice! It's a very scenic area just south of Monterey.
  5. I believe there is a separate battery(on some models anyway)that maintains the settings. That batter is kept topped off by the main battery. You may have an internal battery failure, which would require service.

    X100F with 15-45mm?

    Thanks again;looks like I'm about to spend some more money.

    X100F with 15-45mm?

    Thanks for your response;as you have said, cropping works for anything but bad verticals. I have used the included software to fix my occasional failures in that exact area. I have seen that by all accounts the 14 is killer-sharp but dismissed it as a crazy-wide. I am re-thinking it for the purpose you described.

    X100F with 15-45mm?

    The verticals in the first image demonstrate a perfectly level camera;do you use a hot shoe bubble level for hipshooting or just eyeball it?
  9. Point taken I was thinking of older designs.
  10. Focusing distance and aperture would determine how diffuse the insect would appear if at all. Inasmuch as 23mm is fairly short for APS-C, it would likely appear as a diffuse blob, less diffuse at smaller apertures.
  11. There does have to be pressure equalization vents. Longer fl's create a much greater pressure gradient when focusing rapidly. I never leave uncapped lenses or bodies sitting sitting around.
  12. I hope Fuji responds as it should. If you get no satisfaction, I think you should publish this on every Fujifest forum you can find.
  13. Really bizarre! Like vjc I can't imagine how it could possibly have gotten between the shutter and a lens element save for a bug duct created by a severe manufacturing defect. It should not ever happen in a lens whose aperture diaphragm and shutter are electrically actuated.

    XF35mmF2 Light Loss

    I can offer one troubleshooting suggestion. The spring-loaded pins on the lens "telegraph" the aperture to the camera and drive the aperture to set as ordered by the camera. One of them is "common"(DC-return) to another that completes the circuit. They should move without any binding when depressed and released. If any binding is detected, moving the pin manually thru its entire range of motion might free it up. That is the only user test I can suggest. Correction;pins are in the camera body not the lens, so that tends to invalidate my suggestion because it seems to happen with only one lens.
