Re: Why I'm sending back my X100S (autofocus)

Looking at the second image, based on what is in focus - shop's pavement signs and (very nearly) the pedestrian with toddler-in-arms BEHIND the main subject - the plane of sharp focus is clearly some way in front of your intended target.

Both the X100 and (apparently) now the X100s suffer from 'weird AF box syndrome'. Spoilt a lot of shots - as even the slightest overlap can see the camera homing in on a more distant target.

Zone focus, or very small AF box/point - is the only answer.
