With a heavy heart I sold my X-S10, I can't prove it but I feel shutter-shock might be an issue with the mechanical shutter, whilst it should only impact slower shutter speeds, ultimately I think x-t3/x-t4 had better pixel sharpness. Before you invest in such an expensive lens I'd try a different body?

Thank you And-roid,

I had been thinking about shutter shock and will be testing it in the near future, since it normally only appears within a certain shutter range. I will try to shoot something with the range of 1/60 s to 1/2000 s, it should not be an issue at the higher speeds above 1/125s, normally… we will see…

However, just checked with my camera store here in Singapore, seems getting this lens is rather difficult, since it is constantly sold out… 😳

Well, anyway, thanks fir your comment.


Honestly, I'm not sure if its a combination of the ibis module too, the best thing Fuji could do is add the electronic first curtain, this is standard across all Olympus ibis bodies and apparently introduced to counter these minute vibrations in compact bodies with ibis, I think it was an oversight by Fuji, not as if they dont have the ability to add it.

It will be easier to rent an x-t4/x-t3 than get your hands on a 500mm Nikon lens by the sound of it!
