Fuji X100v Grinding noise/resistance during manual focusing

I've recently picked up a black X100V and my copy has the grinding noise/feel when the focus ring is rotated. The effect is worse when moving the ring quickly but is does happen even at slower rotation speeds.

I called Fuji (UK) technical support today and the technician told me that it's not a recall issue but it has been found to affect some cameras. He advised me to either get it exchanged with the retailer (which I plan do to) or to send it in for repair.

Either way, Fuji confirmed that it's not 'normal' behaviour and should not be happening on any X100V.

It's a shame as I've already returned one X100V because the front dial was not working properly.

Hopefully the next copy I get will be a good one.

Hope this helps anyone with the same issue.
