On Fujifilm X-T30ii with any 'R' lens with an Aperture switch, flipping this to Aperture priority always defaults to F22 and doesn't recall the last aperture used.

Same lens on older bodies (such as X-T20) flipping to manual aperture recalls the last setting. For example could set manual at F8 and then flip between auto and F8 all day using the aperture switch on the lens. Even swapping lenses it would still recall the last aperture setting.

Is there any way to bring this behavior back to the X-T30ii, or any workarounds to default to a different aperture for Aperture priority?

I also wonder if this new behavior to always default F22 is on other recent X bodies.

In aperture priority, the camera will set the aperture to whatever setting you have the lens' aperture ring set as.  Turn the aperture ring to F22 and the camera will be set to F22.   Unless I'm missing something.
