Re: Fuji X20 --Wake up Delay/Overexposure Issue -- anyone else noticed this?

Ah yes, I can reproduce the OPs problem now. It's the aperture opening right up then closing down when coming from picture viewing to taking.  The Sony NEX5 CSC does it as well, but it's much quicker (<1 sec) due to the APS-C sensor I guess, so it would not present a real-life issue.

If after viewing a shot (and pointing the camera to a bright light source) I press the shutter release button to focus and then immediately press it further, the shot is taken whilst the aperture is still closing. I've never noticed that before. Good to know, and although I rarely ever shoot in this way, it would explain the odd one or two over-exposed shots I've had.

A useful thread.
