Hi guys, I'm writing to you guys in a despaired tone About two months ago, my fuji x100s just stopped working. I sent it to fuji Brazil technical assistance (Im from Brazil). After about a week, they sent the camera back to me with the following technical opinion: PARTS NO MORE SUPPLIED FOR REPAIR // MAIN BOARD FCB2398A100 // Apparently there's some kind of trouble on the "motherboard" of the camera. I'm negatively surprised with this fact, because it's only 3 to 4 years since this model has been released, and fuji just stopped to manufacture repair parts. I'm really don't know how to proceed. I tried others assistances and nothing could be done. Im also tried to get in touch with another FUJI offices around the world but them just said me to get in touch with the same FUJI Brazil that couldn't help me. Fuji cameras has a superb image quality, but they probably should manufacture repair parts for 5 years after the release of the cameras. I Think my only choice is throw the fuji x100s carcass on the bottom of a drawer, hoping to occasionally find someone selling these parts on internet. With some one could help me with some advice about this, I'll be eternally grateful.
So I've ordered the Fuji X-T10 along with the Fujinon 60mm 2.4 (to coincide with the X100s and TCL-X100 that I already own) in order to finally start second shooting for local documentary wedding photographers. Obviously, I would love more lenses but money is VERY tight at the moment and this was the absolute max budget I could afford until after the summer. It worked out at £670 overall ($984), including a cashback offer Fuji currently have on bodies in the UK. I would LOVE a 56mm but they are more than double the price of the 60mm. I was torn between the 35mm and 60mm as they were approx the same price, ish, but I decided to go with the 60mm as it is obviously a much different focal length to the X100s. My question is, have I made the right decision? The order has been placed and now buyers remorse has set in! Surely the Fuji X100s (with or without the TCL) would be just too close to the 35mm? Right? Surely the variety of the X100 along with the X-T10 + 60mm give me better options going forward for (documentary) wedding photography? Also, does anyone have any experience with the 60mm on the X-T10? Thanks guys, I appreciate any advice/feedback/experience you have for me.
