Weird focusing issue with X100 firmware 2.0
10 months ago

I recently purchased the WCL-X100. My X100 returned from the Fuji USA Repair Center today, so I installed firmware 2.0 and went out to do some hyperfocal testing with my new WCL-X100.

I started running into this strange behavior with the red focal distance bar while doing my testing. Here is the scenario:

Say I manually focus to precisely 5 feet. I take the shot (using a shutter release cable) and see the 1.5 second preview of the image. When the preview goes away and I see the distance scale again, the red bar is no longer precisely at 5 feet. It has moved 1 increment closer (~4.5 feet). I have not bumped the focus ring and the camera is on manual focus.

Is anyone else experiencing this?
