I have just bought a second but near mint x-e1 which I have paired with vintage lens. I am using a canon fd 50mm, and a Takumar 55mm and have found the images to be soft.
I have also used a 35mm Fujian and the images are sharper.
I think I am using the camera wrong. I have updated to the latest firmware and can see the focus peaking. In the evf the image is sharp but when I half press the shutter release the image seems to get softer and I refocus, I also use the ring button to magnify the subject and refocus but I am getting soft images.
Is this the property of the lens I have? or the as I suspect the way I am using the x-system. Your guidance would be much appreciated.
