AFS-S issue - Returning my XT5
5

I’ve read a fair few threads and and watched  videos on the AF acquisition being a problem for the XT-5, however my issue has been on static subjects where I can only describe there being a back focus issue.

I’m a long time Fuji user (XE1, XT1, XT3) so feel I have a good understanding. My comparison with my XT3 has shown a difference in the focus. Where there is a muddy look to the shots and on closer inspection the focus is off.

I’ve used focus priority, tripod and decent shutter speeds…1/500 and I still appear to have had the issue consistently on 50% of image to a varying degree.

strange initially I was thinking it was user error, or one of the settings, but hacking by chance seen a discussion by another user with the same issue, then I acknowledged it was a camera issue.

will look at another body, or maybe an XH2. Would be interesting if this issue has manifested for others. 
The million dollar question is whether Fuji has a firmware update in the works. There should at least be some acknowledgment.
