Defective autofocus of my Fujinon 56mm 1.2

I took some more photos today, just a few, but enough to confirm that this new 56mmm works worse than the other one. That is at least what I can see.

What would you do?

It seems to be bad faith, considering the whole picture. I don't know what to say.

Is there someone from Fuji in this forum?

I realized that the serial number is on an adhesive label, so basically it is technically possible that it is my old lens with a new label. The manual and the pouch are the same. And to be honest, it didn’t look like brand-new when I first saw it. My old lens was impeccable, so it is possible.

I am only speculating.

And when they “repaired” it, it didn’t change anything.

So, I don’t know if this lens works as it should, but it is possible that it has always been the same lens all along, just as I bought it.

Wouldn't it make more sense to write a book about your frustration with this lens and then sell it? In this way, you could compensate for "your" loss.

@cpXThe new lens is not the same as the old one, apparently. I looked at the EXIF and the serials are different. Also, I found a photograph of my old lens. And in this one the serial was printed in the plastic of the lens. And it also had another text printed in the plastic that is not in the new one.

Would you buy that book? It would be very boring.

The manager didn’t answer my last email. So I am going to write to him again demanding an explanation from someone. Basically I want them to tell me if the lens is working as it should.

First, I have to concentrate on this. And then, if someday I finish this issue, I could write a summary in different forums about my experience with Fuji. I don't think I have enough material for a book.

Of course, if there is a meaningful information for me in it that is worthwhile. Someone will surely buy this and if it's just a review of the book. Then good luck.

Here is a snapshot taken with the 56mm F/1.2. (Cut out because of the 1MB limitation here in the forum.)
