Is it me or is the 27mm really quirky in AF
2 months ago

I got the 27mm on the current sale but I see it as quite disappointing in AF department. it is almost 50/50 chance the camera will throw AF error on anything in portrait to full body distance even if it is not a tricky focus. Also the focusing itself seems to be slow - significantly slower than any other fuji lens I have.

I have 35mm, 18mm and the 16-50mm and none have such significant issues. (all latest firmware) They are not super speedy, but perfectly workable, while the 27mm passes the threshold of unworkable and I am definitely not keeping it.

Is it my particular lens or is this a general way the 27mm works? (Should I try another 27mm or simply abandon the ship)
