  1. Thanks, this is just what I needed. While I've been shooting with Fuji now for several years, I often get stumped by settings I rarely use. I recently purchased a manual lens and had a time figuring out how to set up the camera. I'm sure the other tips will come in handy also, thanks again. Jim White
  2. I agree with you, I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for a silver version!
  3. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! That was it! I had it set to ON, now things seem to be operating normally. It does still act that way if I have the camera in the SR auto mode (I know I'm not supposed to use that!) Maybe I'll finish reading my owners manual someday...Thank you again, now I may start using these lenses some more, though I am fond of the 18-55. Thank you again, Jim White.
  4. Hello all, my apologies if this topic has been asked before. I have the X-E2s model and normally use my 18-55 zoom lens. I also have the 18 f/2 and 35 f/1.4 prime lenses. Whenever I use these lenses it seems that the auto focus goes haywire. The lens is constantly chattering back and forth as if it is trying to focus. It does not matter if the camera is in the "auto" mode or manual. Or if the focus setting is single or continuous. The only time it stops doing this is when I switch the camera to the manual focus mode. The camera operates normally with the zoom lens but this drives me crazy when trying to use the prime lenses! I have checked the firmware on the camera and lenses and everything is using the most current version. Any help would be appreciated. I rarely use either of the lenses now because of this problem. Thanks, Jim White
  5. It's funny, I was wondering the same thing. They could sell at least two!
  6. A couple sites claim they are on back order and more are on the way...I also like the size of the X-E's and pretty much take it with me everywhere. I guess I've got a bit of "pixel" envy and wonder if a newer sensor would be nice. The X-T3 is also probably more camera than I really "need" , so many cameras so little time & money...:)
  7. I think this is Fuji's third round of "sales" that I've noticed this year, maybe they've finally moved them all out? They were about to wear me down with this one. I hadn't noticed that none where now available! Thanks for the update, maybe I need to look at the discounted X-T3?
  8. Ahhh, y'all are going to have me buying one yet! Thanks.
  9. Thanks again for the replies & information. I managed to resist the last sale but I see that Fuji has recently started a summer sale, not sure if I can do it again. Do I really "need" another camera? No, do I want another camera...
  10. Thanks again for the excellent information! My X-E2s is still working well and I'm happy with it. It will probably die a week after this sale is over!
  11. Thanks for your detailed reply! I'm still waffling around...by the time I make a decision the sale will probably be over!
  12. I'm currently considering the current Fuji offer of the XE-3 at $500 this spring 2020. I had an XE-1 and currently use the XE-2s. I'm a bit concerned about moving from the d-pad to a joy stick and the touch screen. I've seen several negative remarks here on the forum. Any thoughts on whether the image quality/benefits are worth making a switch/upgrade? Thanks, Jim White.
  13. Hello, I've had my X E-1 for awhile now but it now seems to be in need of Fuji service. The shutter curtain has stuck in the closed position and I have not been able to find a simple solution to the problem. I did try contacting Fuji support but was told to send it in for service. I think I can predict that the cost of repair is going to exceed the value of the camera. So I guess I'm really asking if it's worth sending in at all. Anyone had a similar problem or experience with Fuji service when dealing with an older model? Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. Jim White
