XF 16-55mm - Do I have a bad copy?
1

Hi,

I've owned this lens for a couple months and have recently received it back from warranty service to address a problem with the lens sharpness at the long end of the zoom range.  I'm noticing a lot of softness, most noticeable at f/2.8 when at 55mm.  I know this isn't the "proper" aperture for a landscape shot at infinity focus, but sometimes in low light I'll want to grab a landscape snap or something.

See the attached images.  These were shot on my X-H1.  Fujifilm "Replaced barrel and base (3)" according to the work order but the same issue is still occurring.  I've tried manual focusing and AF, same results.  Lens is sharp at f/8.

Any advice is appreciated!
