The aperture can only be controlled with the rear command dial on the X-T2 (using a lens with an aperture ring).

1) You will have to assign APERTURE SETTING to the rear command dial

2) The aperture ring must be set to "A"

3) The shutter dial can't be set to "T"

Thank you, Erik – this is helpful to know that 'T' plays a role here.

I gave it a spin and, unfortunately, this does not solve the issue. Here are my settings:

  • Aperture on 'A'
  • Command Dial setting > SS (front), F (rear)
  • Fn/AE-L/AF-L settings > Rear Dial > Aperture setting

Pretty sure you have to have SS on the rear dial, F on the front.

I much prefer using the aperture ring to a dial (after my muscle memory from early days kicked back in) , but if I did want to control the aperture will a dial, I wouldn't be happy. Fuji definitely messed that up the setup possibilities for that - I would want to use the front dial for aperture (my aperture-ringless NIkons had SS on the rear and aperture on the front.

Agreed – the rings are the way to go – I just want to make sure my camera is able to do this in case I buy a ringless lens (viltrox 85, 27mm pancake, etc).

Unfortunately the SS/F configuration, added to the list above, also doesn't seem to solve the issue :/
