Is this sticky blade?
May 3, 2012

My new x100 is just 3 weeks old. The exposures are always correct, no over exposures. But reading the posts about sticky blades makes me feel worried. If I set the camera on 'A' at say f16 the aperture always correctly closes right down. But often when I release the shutter the aperture will not instantly return to fully open, it will half open and then fully open. Sometimes it will remain closed for a couple of seconds before jumping back to fully open.

Also when focusing its quite noisy. Is this normal?

Are these symptoms of stick blade?

My serial no starts with 21NO. Does anyone know if this is a recent build? Any advice welcome
