Autofocus distance indicator on the X-10
Just a quick question to current or ex X-10 users:
Do/Did your autofocus distance indicator work(ed) correctly ?
More or less
On mine X-10 it doesn't matter if I focus on a motive within 0.5 m or 20 m away - it always shows the focus distance in a region under 1 m (in P or A mode)
That shouldn't happen. When I half-press the shutter button, I get a pretty accurate readout of the autofocus distance -- so much so, that it helped me this past weekend avoid a missed focus when photographing my daughter on a swing. (I think it was focusing on a tree some meters beyond.) I typically shoot A mode.
I'm using an UV filter on the lens - could this be the problem or didn't I just understand how the indicator works ?
I don't own a UV filter, so I don't know. Have you tried it without the filter?
