Hello - I just bought my X-H1 a few weeks ago and have been using it quite a bit to get up to speed. Last night I photographed singers in a small café using the 35mm f2 lens using manual focus with peaking since it was fairly dark. Everything was going well until about 2.5 hours into the session when the focus would change substantially even though I hadn't moved the focusing ring. This happened when I'd put the camera down for a few minutes. When I picked it back up and turned it on, the focus was very different. I hadn't touched it in the meantime. I'm not absolutely sure about this, but I also recall a couple of instances where the same thing happened when I was shooting, not just when I had set the camera down.
Has anyone else experienced this behavior?
I've also noticed that the Film Simulation and Dynamic Range settings seem to reset occasionally. And I've gotten a card error a couple of times in slot 1. I take the card out and put it back in until it works, but these glitches are a little concerning on a brand new camera. Again, have other users had these things occur?
I really like how this camera has improved my workflow and the quality of the images I'm getting. But I really want to be confident that I can count on it.
I own th XT-1.
After searched for opinions and "way of mind" all over - I want to advice with the FUJI'S.
I am A photography is A hobby for me.
I like taking shots at streets - people And , situations happen at street , interesting buildings , abandoned buildings.
At the moment I using the XF-18-55.
So thinking of buying A wide-angle short lenses
And want to advice with you which is the best suits me.
35? 23? ..... or any other else?
If possible - offering option A and B.
Thank you very much!
After moving to Fuji X system I extensively used large number of Trans-X bodies and XF lens. Most of them perform excellent optically and very good mechanically. I think Fuji is doing great job designing and supporting gear.
The only thing is bothering me all the time - if the electronics is dead lens typically becomes fully unusable. There are numerous third party or adapted fully manual lens that solve that concern. But what if I want to keep using my favorite Fuji optics mechanically? I've performed numerous attempts and discovered potential of converting XF 35mm F1.4 and XF 27mm F2.8, and recently found highly satisfying result of adapting Fujinon XF 27mm F2.8 that requires relatively low effort.
Here's resulting article explaining what can you do with electronically dead Fujinon XF 27mm F2.8 lens to bring it back to life in much more compact frame of Industar 50-2.
Alternatively you can also use adapted Fuji XF 27mm F2.8 lens on other APS-C cameras like Sony or Canon.
