Problem with auto focus on XF 50-140mm 2.8

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, new Fuji-freak here!

I bought yesterday X-T3 with the 18-55 lens and XF 50-140mm f2.8, both used.

At first I was really impressed with both of them but soon I figured out that there's something strange with the 50-140 and autofocus. The problem occurs at the maximum 140mm focal lenght. The autofocus can't focus near. It will only work for longer distances (over 4-5 meters) even though the minimum focus distance should be 1 meter. Even a slight zoom out e.g. 138mm will make the autofocus work normally.

All the settings are in "auto", I'm shooting in single shot mode and autofocus on single point. The problem occurs in every possible setup. Here's a video about the problem (I didn't find my stand so I had to use chair) [ignore the cat meowing] https://youtu.be/g8snv-60DBM

Has anyone else had the same problem or should I return the lens?

      I’ve had a weird issue with a photo today. See attached. (No idea why it attaches upside down, and ignore the stripes on the image, it’s a photo of my computer screen. The issue is the dark edge on the right of the hand).
      This is a crop of an unedited picture, with no in-camera effects. Xpro-3 with 23mm f/1.4, shot wide open. Looks almost like grey CA? Or like someone has badly cut out the hand or something?
      Ive not seen anything like this before - anyone know if I should be worried about the sensor? Or is this just a weird blip from shooting wide open?

      I'm new to the Fuji system and I would like to know if it's possible to set a focus zone and tell the camera to "only search for faces in that specific area", instead of hunting everywhere in the image and end up focusing on some passer-by in the background? Also, when face/eye detection isn't hitting the right target, what's the quickest way to manually toggle out of it? I tried moving my focus point with the joystick but the camera would fight me and keep picking up faces in the areas I don't want. Does anyone have a solution with this? I'm using an X-T30.

      Hi all, this is my first post on here and a complete amateur to boot. I am very keen to buy a new camera that I will enjoy shooting with and obviously I'd like the best image quality available, so can any of you guys please advise on any thoughts, ideas based on your experiences with these cameras for the kind of shooting I want to achieve, and any images to back suggestions up is of course more than welcome, thank you in advance guys.
      PS, just wanted to say my budget is around £2750 gbp, for a camera, and 2 lenses if possible.📷👍😀

      Hi,
      I'm having some weird issues with the Fringer EF-FX Pro II on my Fuji XT3 and I hope someone can help.
      When using the adapter with my Canon and Sigma lenses the image on the camera LCD is not showing the correct depth of field for the selected aperture unless I half-press the shutter button.
      The dof in the image remains wide open unless I half-press the shutter.
      The exposure of the image is shown correctly and changes accordingly when changing the apertue on the lens, the aperture numbers on the screen also indicate the correct selected f-stop, but the dof in the image remains shallow, as if the lens is wide open, unless I half-press the shutter.
      Half pressing the shutter also no longer affects the focus of the image.
      I'm shooting in S mode with settings full manual- ss, iso, aperture.
      I've formatted the camera, updated to the latest firmware in camera and adapter (1.7) and the issue still persists.
      Is this there a menu fix I'm missing here? Has anyone else experienced this? Or is this possibly a Fringer issue?
      Thanks for your help!

      Hello, i've recently got an X-T3 and ive recorded some short videos but when I try to move them onto my pc or external hard drive it says "this device is unreachable". It will also not play the videos despite apparently having the correct codecs installed. I'm relatively new to all of this so any help would be appriciated, thanks.

    • New member...Roger....First Fuji X camera (x100V) Long term user of Canon (5Diii,7D,various compacts) and a long-term user of RAW in Lightroom. Excited with the X100V and new to me the film simulations.   JPeG quality, etc....excellent stuff! Question:   Is the Fujifilm X RAW studio essential to workflow?  For exports, I am converting to JPeG anyway from LR.   Yes, I can appreciate using the in-camera processing....but, your opinion is appreciated. Do I really  need it?
    • I can recommend the Profoto A1X. It's pricy, but worth every penny once you've start using it. A cheaper alternative is the Godox V1, which is also quite good but can run hot under heavy load (and blocks) and the battery secure mechanism can cause issues after which the battery drops out unexpectedly. The first I experienced myself. The latter I heard on two occasions from reliable sources.
