Returned X-E4. Unexpected deal breaker issue
7

I know the X-E4 is a controversial camera.

Usual Fuji functionality has been reduced with this model and I was very prepared for the reduction in buttons, options etc. I was able to find work arounds or way of using the camera for what suited my needs very quickly and easily.

Unfortunately there is an unexpected issue that I couldn't get past.

I like to use adapted manual lenses and use the Magnify (Focus Assist) alot and also with focus peaking. In all the other Fujifilm cameras I have had/tried, there is 2 levels of magnification (I think it is generally 2.5x and 6x magnification) in the X-E4 they have only the bigger 6x magnification.

With the larger magnification and using lenses 50mm and over the resulting shaking image is too much.

Honestly, I am so disappointed that they did this and cannot understand it all. It was something that I just wasn't expecting and has made the camera unusable for my needs.

If they change this in a firmware update, I would get this again as I do like the camera.
