Earlier this year, I started to get fuzzy pictures with my X-T2 (and the 18-135mm lens) so I sent them in to Fujifilm to check.
Back they came with the report that they were "both performing to specification."
But at the foot, under "Remarks", there was this:
"Please be aware that using on fully Auto Mode, shutter speed and ISO, can affect that camera [which] has its issues with focusing."
Not very well expressed (so I added the "which")  -- but most worrying.
That was a month ago. Since then I've been testing it with either the ISO or the shutter speed (or both) on A[uto]:
at relatively close range (3 to 10m): never a problem, sharp as a pin;
10 to 30m or so: OK depending on what I've focused on.
BUT at a greater distance (e.g. landscape, which is what I photograph most), 1 photo out of 3 is unsharp or frankly blurred.
It's not a problem of camera shake. It happens with speeds up to 1/1000, and at ISO 200 to 400.

Has anyone else had this?
