I switched over to Fuji from Nikon a few years ago and seem to have become quite a gear collector. When I used Nikon I had a Nikon D7200 and the 24mm f1.8, 35mm f1.8, 50mm 1.8, 85mm f1.8, and 60mm f2.8D lenses. Since moving to Fuji I have managed to obtain the following: cameras: X-T3, X-T30, and recently the X100V lenses: Laowa 9mm f2.8, Fuji 10-24mm, Fuji 16mm F2, Fuji 16mm f1.4, Fuji 16-80, Fuji 18-55, Fuji 23mm f2, Fuji 27mm, Fuji 35mm f2, Mitakon 35mm, Fuji 50mm F2, Fuji 56mm, Voigtlander 58mm f1.4, Fuji 55-200, and the Fuji 90mm (still also have the Nikon 60mm f2.8D). So I love all of these lenses, but honestly have way too many to put them all to use as I should. I am wanting to move to a minimalist set up. I recently purchased the X100V and instantly fell in love with that camera. The one lens design has really helped me rediscover what I loved about photography upon first starting out. So the X100V is staying with me. So I am wanting to sell some of my excess and need some advice about what to keep. At the moment I am thinking about keeping the X-T3 with the Laowa 9mm, Fuji 16 f1.4, Fuji 56 f1.2, Fuji 90mm f2, Fuji 16-80mm, Mitakon 35mm, and Voigtlander 58mm f1.4 (just for the fun of manual focusing). My question is, does this sound like a reasonable set-up? I really want to move away from zooms (except for the 16-80 for fun).
Hi, I am considering buying the Fuji 50mm f2, which generally has had excellent reviews: very sharp, good microcontrast, close focusing ability, fast autofocus, light weight, relatively inexpensive, etc. However, some users have reported that the autofocus was very slow close to the minimum focusing distance. Have others also experienced this problem? I have read about a similar problem (focus hunting) on the Fuji x-forum, which was attributed to Fuji's 3.0 firmware update, in which the problem was resolved when camera was returned and the 2.1 firmware was installed. Regarding the focus hunting problem, it was mentioned that Fuji knows about this problem, which will be resolved in a future firmware update. Should I wait until this problem is resolved or do most people think that this is a permanent problem. Thanks
