Compared to my X-20 (maybe on other bodies as well) the Q-menu button has now moved to the upper right position, nearly under my right thumb. Often when I grab the X100F and bring the viewfinder to my eye, I discover that I have hit the Q button. I know I can lock all these buttons by depressing the menu button long enough . But I wonder how Fuji engineers did not notice this when testing the design of the body?

Short thumbs...? I have the same problem with the X-Pro2 and even with the GFX it sometimes happens, and I really hate it. I think, it's simply a remainder of some original design and they don't want to change it for consistency. By now, most users expect it this way.

This was the thing that led me to these forums. I've been using my camera for two hours and have accidentally brought up the Q menu at least half a dozen times. I'll see if locking them out fixes the issue... But really. How does that not come up in the entire prototyping phase?

I have been shooting with the “F” since day one and the Q button is just killing me. I have had every version of the x100 and for the life of me can’t figure out why they placed it where the thumb would naturally want to rest. I do have large hands I guess (size large gloves but not a 6’8” NBA player). Camera is wonderful but this button needs to be moved! Any update to this camera that keeps the Q button where it is on the “F” will not be purchased by me.
X-PRO2 has the same problem but twice, Q and AF-L !

Fuji should replace that designer guy with small hands who insist that’s a good position for the Q button or whatewer button.
Fuji should hire staff to specifically cater to your demands?
I personally much prefer the location of the Q button on the X100F over that of the Q and AEL/AFL buttons on my X100T. No layoffs required on my behalf though.
