Re: Aperture ring

But there is the issue, the XF primes' aperture rings until now looked very floppy to me. So I very much welcome that the 56's announcement states "The aperture ring is designed to ensure it’s easy to detect ‘clicks’ between f-stops"

I guess that stems from user feedback, a thing Fuji is very much known to take serious. So do you think they'll facelift the existing lenses for a stiffer aperture ring? IMO they could go from 1/3 to 1/2 stop detents at the same time, but a ring that can't be turned by the tip of the small finger or by accident would be nice enough for me.

Best regards,

Martin

I've had the 14/18/35/60 for a long time and loose aperture rings really aren't a problem in real-life use. I always check the aperure dial setting as I raise the camera to my eye and you can constantly check the setting in the OVF/EVF while you take pictures, so I rarely mess up a photo due to an incorrect aperture setting.
