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.

      I primarily use manual focus lens and until yesterday would press on the rear control dial to zoom in and make fine adjustments. This is no longer working. I also am no longer getting peak focus assist as I had been while focusing. I have spent a couple hours  going through my settings and reading the manual, everything seems to be set correctly. As far as I can tell the rear dial function of pressing and not holding(which brings up menu) is a built in default focus assist and have not read were I could have ever accidently turned it off.
        At this point I think something is wrong with the camera, because I made no changes to my control settings, and after going back through them all I do not see anything which would cause this major change in how the camera operates.  
        Can anyone offer which setting I should perhaps check again? Has anyone else had this issue? Does anyone know if something like this is covered under a warranty. I have had this X-E3 a little over a year and love it, and would probably even buy an other if I had to.
        Basically I am looking for any advice I can get before I start going down the repair or replacement route.
       
      Thanks

      Hi All,

      I recently published a Fuji-centric article on the best lenses for infrared photography. Most of the lenses I tested and reported on are XF mount. I did include some Sony FF and Micro 4/3 as well. I include several images too, of course.

      You can see the article on PetaPixel or my blog

      Hope you find it useful!

      Happy shooting,
      Joel

      Is there any option to set the ISO on the front dial, or at least to change it to shutter speed? With the 16-80 lens, I don't need any dial to set the F number anymore, but at the moment the front dial has no value at all, does not change anything in any mode (I use).
      Thanks guys.

      Greetings Fuji community!
      I'm a filmmaker and photographer who shoots on the Fuji X100F. Recently, I created a comprehensive video review of the camera - and I think you'll all find incredible.
      In this video, we'll dive deep into what I consider the most creative and stylish pocket camera I've ever used. Enjoy the viewing experience, and please share it around!
