  1. Hi everyone, thanks for all the valuable input. I have contacted Fuji support and hopefully will be doing some tests with them this week to figure out if there's something wrong with the lens or not. Will post an update if they manage to get the same lens as a sample to use this week!
  2. I was not really moving myself, and at the shutter speeds I'm using it shouldn't matter either? I'm using AF-S, with single point focus.
  3. Thanks for the feedback and insights. I am afraid I might have a bad copy. The subjects were not moving towards me (except the boat but very far away and not too fast) so I don't think that's the problem. Here are some links to the uncropped RAW files, maybe it's easier to see. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4cn99q8hzllqnbk/DSCF7368.RAF?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/kshuz44g5mordng/DSCF7373.RAF?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/jp7iucdioru432m/DSCF7404.RAF?dl=0
  4. Here are the RAW files for a few pictures: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4cn99q8hzllqnbk/DSCF7368.RAF?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/kshuz44g5mordng/DSCF7373.RAF?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/jp7iucdioru432m/DSCF7404.RAF?dl=0 Thanks!
  5. I did a few tests without it and I couldn't see much of a difference. I take it that this quality is not to be expected then? At what shutter speed should I start using OIS? Thanks!
  6. Hi, I'm new to the Fuji system and this forum. I posted this on the X-T2 one but I am now figuring out it is more suited to the Lens forum. So I'm sorry about the double post and if there's a rule against this let me know so I can delete the previous post. Having said that... I bought a used XT-2 and a brand new XF 18-135mm lens. Just went on my first trip with it and I'm not happy with how a lot of the pictures turned out. I can't understand why some of them look blurred (as in by movement). Some others just don't look crisp enough. I'm attaching cropped versions at 100% zoom of the pictures to highlight some problem areas (they are not near the edges). Perhaps I'm missing something, but I want to rule out my equipment being defective. Is this normal? Picture1: ISO-200 f/5.3 1/1100sec 74mm OIS on Picture2: ISO-200 f/5.6 1/640sec 135mm OIS on Picture3: ISO-200 f/5.6 1/1000sec 88mm OIS on

  8. Thanks Doug, thinking of it like this has been particularly useful: Having used the camera for a couple of weeks now, it doesn't bother me anymore and I see how it works. I would still prefer to know by how much the camera is evaluating the scene to be underexposed as the red numbers don't give an indication as to how far off you are. I'll get used to it.
  9. Hi, I just posted a question very similar to yours. I don't know the answer yet, but I can tell that when in priority mode, what you are seeing on the exposure indicator is whatever you have set in the exposure compensation dial (try adjusting it and you will see how it moves to exactly the value you have selected in the dial, whatever the scene and other settings may be). In manual mode this changes to indicate the actual exposure. I am hoping there's a way to getting that same functionality in priority mode. Hope this helps clarify...
  10. Hi, I'm new to Fuji and I just got an XT-2 and are learning to use it. In full manual mode I can tell if my photo will be correctly exposed using the exposure indicator on the left, however when using aperture priority or shutter speed priority modes, the exposure indicator switches to showing whatever exposure compensation setting I may have. Other than watching out for the Aperture setting turning red, I have found no way to know if my picture will be correctly exposed in this modes. Is there any way to know? The ideal thing to me would be to have the exposure indicator functioning as it does in manual mode. Is there any setting to configure this? Or, how can you know if your picture will be correctly exposed when in priority modes? Thanks for your help!
