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 have a problem with my remote (RR-90), the connection into the camera is very loose (micro usb), almost impossible to keep the timer going. Has anyone else come across this problem please? I do a lot of night and slow shutter shooting so is a necessary evil as the timer only goes for 30s!
I have posted this elsewhere in another thread but have started this thread in the hope that someone will have a fix for the problem.
Those of you who have an Iphone and use tapatalk may or may not be aware that each time that you post your phone signs your messages this way.
It is unnecessary advertising for both Iphone ( which needs no more popularity!) and Tapatalk.
Moreover it can be easily disabled on your phone.
If you run a search on Google there are about 4.000.000 hits concerning this feature ( and how to avoid doing that) which adds nothing to your posts and is very annoying.
Some of you blacken their camera brand and type to not advertise but don’t mind this or would never place a stamp on every picture that you make to the effect of saying “ Proudly made by using a Fujifilm camera”, and yet every post you make contains an unnecessary ad for both Apple ( I have an Imac) and this internet browser for your phone?
Please, this is noting else than a courteous invitation to turn this useless function off. It can be done and won’t detract anything from your forum participation.
Don’t make snarky remarks at me because they would be totally uncalled for. The spirit of this post is not being argumentative but is simply asking you to be nice to those who don’t like this without damaging you at all.
I read Fuji Rumors pretty much every day, and I found it good to join the community !
I first started to shoot with vintage cameras like the Pentax K1000. Later, I fell in love with the touch and feeling of Fujifilm X-Series, that I use now almost exclusively.
I know have a X-M1, and recently bought a X-T10. My lenses are : XC 16-55 OIS, XF27mm f2.8 (really compact with the X-M1), XF35mm f1.4 (the one like the most). I also have an adapter that allows me to mount my pentax lenses on the fuji (just received that last week, so I still have to learn how to take the best of this configuration).
Hi, I've mentioned this in another thread but are you using the Clarity setting at all? Setting it to anything other than '0' results in the 'Storing' issue. Not sure why this is but hopefully it's something that can be fixed in a firmware update.
You can't use the front/rear dial to control aperture on a lens with an aperture ring. However, what you can do is control shutter speed which then will affect your aperture. To do this, set your camera to program mode with aperture, shutter speed, and ISO on Auto.
I have been interested in macro since the Fuji X-line came out. I bought the (in)famous XF60, and although it's crazy sharp for portraits, I've never been satisfied with the close-up it produces. About 1 year ago I sold it.
Over the years I also bought the MCEX-11 , the MCEX-16, and the Raynox 150 and 250. Now I get satisfactory results using my X-H1 and the XF50 and XF90 lenses.
I can confirm : prime lenses are much more suited to be used both with extension tubes and Raynox lens
