  1. LOL. It's not like a dust pan. You won't see the dust collecting anywhere. I've been shooting Fuji since 2012 and I've yet to have my sensor cleaned in any camera. The auto sensor cleaner is a nice gimmick but in reality it's avoidance of dust, sand and other particles that will help keep the sensor clean. I don't change lenses in sandy areas. In dusty areas I keep my camera opening pointed downward at all times and before I attach the lens to the camera I make sure the rear ring where the contacts are located on the lens itself are clean by rubbing my finger around it. Then I make sure the rear element is not dusty. That's about all the precautions I take.
  2. I don't think the 50r was the "best" choice for fast moving concert images -- I'm assuming rock concerts is what you are shooting. I own both the 50r and the 100s and I shoot little league baseball and soccer with the 100s when I feel like goofing around, and use my XH1 when I really want to nail it with 11fps burst modes. As far as the "look" not sure what you mean. Is it the depth of field? At the distance you may be shooting concerts at, say from the pit, or the sides I do not feel it'll matter. You may want to go back to an X series for that type of photography and leave the 50r for more static or slower moving subjects.
  3. We are ALL Taking photos! I came back from a 50 day trip to the Yukon, and the Arctic with 9500 photos using my 30, 45, and 100-200. There you go.
  4. Might not be too late to return it unless you "map" the sensor. IT's one of the menu items

  6. That is not yet available on the 50r. Maybe, in a future firmware upgrade?
  7. I don't understand. Seriously. I shoot several X series, plus GFX. The ONLY sensor I have ever had to clean was my XT1 back in 2018 and that was only because I was at a camera store and they offered to do it for free. I shoot everywhere from the rainforests and jungles of Costa Rica, Florida, Iceland, Yukon, Alaska, etc and switch lenses often. I also shoot at F11-F16 80% of the time. I'm careful about where and how I swap lenses, but I haven't had the dust issues you guys have experienced. Maybe I've been lucky. Just me standing on my soapbox. I'm finished. LOL
  8. I had not. I don't have time. you should have listed it in your issues.
  9. I spent time in the rainforest and jungles, and beaches of Costa Rica with my XT2 and XH1 and though it was dripping humid many of the days I experienced ZERO problems. Even to this day (two years later) I have no issues whatsoever.
  10. I'm already on the list at B&H. I've been waiting for this lens for over a year! I just returned from a 50 day travel and stock trip to Alaska, Yukon and the Arctic Circle (all the way up to Deadhorse/Prudhoe Bay) and I would have LOVED to have had this lens for some wider shots. I used the 30mm for wide and at sometimes I stitched to get the grand view in which is ok with me but it would have been nice. My most used lens was the 100-200mm though. I may sell my 30mm if this 20-35 turns out to be a great one.
  11. Maybe I scanned this too fast but you don't specify what brand 35mm lens you used.
  12. On my cameras I use gaffer tape to cover the holes. I don't shoot video at all so I don't need a microphone. I'm more concerned about moisture/water getting in there than dust. I also use gaffer tape on the side doors (other than memory card slot door) for the same reason.
  13. Man, that is dead center! Haven't seen that before. Have you checked the front element closely? That's so odd. Depending on where you are, if it's not on the lens I'd reach out to Fuji. I'm assuming you bought the camera second hand? Did it have a limited warranty? If new, then return it.
