I was in manual everything, aperture, speed, focus, iso. I used AF-L to focus in manual mode so that pressing the shutter wont change the focus. I also set shutter speed to 1/200 which is about the max sync speed.

The shutter speed and focus change only when I go into review (playback) mode, which happens often when I use multiple flahses. You should try it.

OK, I tried with the flash. If I adjust the shutter speed in 1/3 stops, it does reset to the nearest stop (it loses the fine tune). However my focus remained the same.

Using the EF20 Fuji flash I could synch fine at 1/250 though but I guess it may not work with all flashes. Any reason you can't use a slower speed? 1/125 would work fine too on a tripod. Your subject is not moving after all....

Surprised there is not a speed setting relating to the sync speed though.
