  1. plaidshirts: Thanks. I’ll look for a B+W UV filter
  2. Just one more query: if I use a thin spacer, can I return to using a u/v filter? So I would have: spacer + u/v + adapter ring for hood. Thanks for your helpful replies. By any chance, do u also own an XT20?
  3. I currently have only an adapter ring on to which the lens hood screws (JJC kit). (Previously I had a u/v filter + adapter ring.) Are you suggesting I get a thin adapter ring to fit between lens & lens-hood adapter?
  4. What about the adapter ring I use to attach my JJC lens hood? Does this affect lens movement too? Presumably the official Fuji lens hood also requires an adapter ring. If so Fuji are (knowingly?) contributing to the problem. i used to have a u/v filter + hood adapter ring’sttached. I had further Focus Error! problems so I’ve removed the filter. Let’s see what happens now. As mentioned before, it’s a pity Fuji haven’t put out an advisory note on this. I did ask for clarification on several Fuji Twitter sites. Still waiting.
  5. Pity Fuji hasn’t issued an advisory note about this (as far as I’m aware).
  6. Marry me! Yes, I do use a UV filter. Plus I have an adapter attached to it to use a hood. Just taken all of them off. And ... we are go again. Screwed UV on in reverse. Still OK. Added adapter & hood. Still OK. HUGE THANKS (especially as I have $100 repair bill for an XPro2 and I also live in Thailand, where communications with Fuji Thailand in Bangkok are ‘problematic’ and drink-inducing.) Thanks for kicking off 2019 on a high note.
  7. Focus Error! is quite common with my X100F!! Normally it’s fixed with a turn off/on. But not this time. Also battery removal did nothing. So it’s off to Fuji, where it can meet its friend (my XPro2) which is also sick. I’m anticipating an eye-widening repair bill ...
  8. My X100F has locked up, with Focus Error! on the LCD. Time to send it to Fuji for repair. Anyone else experienced this? If so, an estimate of the cost would be appreciated.
  9. Hello Doug 1. I never change the ISO via the Q menus, always via my Fn button allocated to ISO. Yesterday, for example, I never touched the Q button, yet the camera decided to reset my Auto ISO settings to factory default and put itself on ISO 200. 2. Spanner/Button/Dial settings/AE/AF-Lock Mode=On/Off Switch. But in Fn/AE-Lock/AF-Lock Button Setting I have the choice of AF-On or AF Lock Only. Presumably I should also set this to Lock. While talking to the dealer, another Fuji owner came in. Hearing my queries, he had a look at DPReview: seems I’m not alone ... The dealer has reset me, so let’s see what happens now. Bye (I forgot to mention that the camera will not allow me to have digital exposure compensation in Large Info mode, only the Scale along the left side.)
  10. Hello Doug Thanks for your feedback, but: 1. I haven’t touched ISO via the Q menus. I set my own Auto ISO 1-3 ranges and assign this to an Fn button (on the XT20 this is the top-plate Fn button). I change my ISO ranges via this button. I’ve just been using the XT20 and, as on previous outings, it decided to revert to the factory-set Auto ISO ranges while also reverting to ISO 200: all my ISO settings being erased. It has also erased my Auto settings overnight: everything fine at shut down; Auto ISOs back to factory settings and ISO 200 set when started up the next day. 2. Meantime, the focus lock button (which is my focus lock button; no Fn assignment) doesn’t focus. When pressed and released, the green focus lock sign comes on even though the subject isn’t in focus. So I focus with the shutter button, then use the focus lock button to retain focus. (On my XPro2 and 100F, the focus lock button locks focus without my having to go near the shutter. Similarly, my Auto ISOs only change at my command.) Back to the dealer tomorrow ...
  11. Just remembered glitch number 3 with my recently purchased XT20: 3. (Current v2 firmware update is installed; ‘large’ EVF & LCD info.) I’ve requested digital exposure compensation, turning off the scale info on the left of the EVF/LCD. No. It’s either scale or nothing. (On my other X bodies, I have digital compensation.) Is this an XT20 quirk or just my body playing hard to get? Once again, feedback appreciated. Thanks
  12. Just bought an XT20, couple of issues: 1. Camera will not retain my 3 auto ISO parameters. Set them one day. Next day, turn on: default ISO 200 & all my auto ISO settings have returned to the factory defaults. Today I reset them, only for the camera to have a hissy fit 5 mins later, forgetting being in auto ISO 1 & returning to 200, with all my auto ISO settings reset back to factory defaults. I assume this ain’t normal XT20 behaviour. 2. When I press the autofocus lock button, nothing happens. I focus with the shutter button, then lock it with the lock button. On my other Fuji X bodies, pressing the lock button focuses without my needing to touch the shutter release. Is the XT20 different or is it just my body? After a week’s use, I’m finding the XT20 to be v temperamental, unlike my other X bodies, which do what they’re told day in, day out. Any feedback appreciated. Thanks
  13. So, that's a No. And a Yes! Anyway, thanku, gentlemen & Happy New Year!
  14. Newbie query: Can I use the USB lead (for connecting to computer) to charge up X100T's battery from a portable power pack, say, if I'm out and about and need to top up the battery while having lunch ... I have a power pack with a '5V' output and 2 USB points with either '1A' or '2.4A' MAX (output?). I anticipate recharging to be slower than via a charger but don't mind that so long as it doesn't blow the mind of the X100T. (FYI: the power pack happily charges up an iPad Air.)
