Question for XF16-55mm Owners: Having Focus Ring Issues?

Recommended Posts

Just purchased one used and looks to be in decent condition. However, I’m confused about the focus ring. All the reviews praise this lens for the high build quality and this focus ring feels quite poor to me. I can feel a constant light mechanical “clicking“ or “stuttering” at seemingly random times, and it intermittently makes a faint plastic-sliding-on-metal sound. It just doesn’t feel “right”. (The lens having power or not makes no difference.) Is this normal? Should I send it back? I use manual focus consistently with my lenses, so I can see this becoming irritating...

I don't have the 16-55, but manual focusing an AF lens can be a little stuttery in its response.

If you're just talking about the mechanical feel of the focus ring, that should be smooth.

Maybe some dirt has gotten in there after all?

    • Fan of X-Trans since P&S days Is RGB or RGGB better mosaics than Fujifilm's GBGGRGRB? How many bits of dynamic range and how few fractions of arc-seconds of resolution are needed for the more common pixel mosaics versus the more complicated X-Trans? Moire decreases with pixel size but photopic luminance for color channels and spacial frequency still matters. Debate, now, for your favorite mosaic!
    • Did you say iPhone? Their external mics usually have 4-conductor cables, which aren't directly compatible with anything else. Try an adapter with 3 conductors.
