Faulty new 56mm? what does yours sound like?
Jun 15, 2014

I've tried my new 56 mm on both my X-E2 and X-T1. It’s the same on both cameras: there are a lot of clunky noises when I focus.

As it is one of the newest Fuji lenses I’d assumed it would be one of the quietest to focus but the noises are both louder and different to both my 35mm and 18-55mm lenses. It sounds as if some lens elements are hitting another part of the lens several times as they move around when focussing. Also the focussing speed is not superior, in fact perhaps the opposite.

I’d be very interested to hear how your 56mm lens sounds and if you have any thoughts on what might be going on.

By the way, both camera and lens have version 1.0 firmware which I understand is the latest one.

Many thanks
