Re: HS30 Improving with age

When I received my 30 the zoom was the first thing I tested. There had been a number of comments about it being like the 20, that is, firm bordering on stiff. It was quite stiff to turn especially compared to my silky smooth S6500. I remember putting a post up mentioning this and Ralph replying with the comment, that "like the 20 it should wear in". It's taken a while but my 30 has "worn in" and the zoom is a lot smoother than when it first arrived. It's not perfect but much better.

Fuji may have addressed the stiffness in later batches of the 25/30's and that's why we are getting a variation of comments.

And Happy new year to you all.
