    I want to thank all of you that helped.  The link to the Fuji site was a great help.  I still think they over complicate the situation.  For example, the difference between wide and zone when ...
  • Out shooting, I find this difficulty in waking from sleep a real pain. Often, you push the shutter to what feels like the first position before firing and it does nothing. In frustration, you keep ...
  • I have both lenses and fro a sharpness standpoint in the central area you can only just see the difference at 200%.  At 100% they are very close.  Strangely, the 16-50 I have is sharper toward the ...
  • I like the X100 cameras and have owned three different variants as well as a Leica Q.  What I learned was that far too often I either needed a wider lens or a longer lens for the subjects that I ...
  • I purchased the Fuji one and it is great but more expensive.  It looks like it was always part of the camera because of the way it molds to the grip and it doesn't interfere with the battery door. ...
  • Yes, my camera is in high performance mode.  It is strangely intermittent as there are times it wakes normally.  Other times I get frustrated and resort to on-off switch.
  • Created discussion thread Possible XT-20 Bug
    I noticed that one cannot reliably wake the camera from sleep and be ready to shoot. I was testing to see how quickly I could put the camera into action if I allowed it to go to sleep and then 1/2 ...
  • I have tried 3 different screen protectors and not one has worked properly.  I tried the one from B&H Photo, the GGS from Amazon and the Expert Shield from Amazon.  All three show an area of ...

    Thanks for trying to help.  Just so you know, I have owned and used many different cameras including several Leica's, the Q most recently.  Leica seems to be able to make menus that are simple yet ...
  • Created discussion thread Could Fuji Please Simplify AF?
    Maybe it is just me but I find Fuji's AF confusing. It seems to me that there should be two main choices, Single shot AF and AF tracking. The sub menus for single shot would be selection of AF ...
  • I have owned several Leica's, including the Q which I owned for about 12 months before I sold it.  Of the different Leica's M8, T, X, etc., the Q was my favorite.  I have also owned several ...
  • I had the M5, recently returned it because of this issue among others.  I purchased the Fuji X-T20 and I can tell you, it fires instantly in the dark under the same settings.  Additionally, it ...
  • I have the current version 6.9 and it works just fine with M5 raw files.
  • Go to menu 3 and select 1 point AF which will turn off continuous AF.  That should solve your problem.
  • Today, I saw a video of the M5 side by side with the M6 with the viewfinder on top.  I expected that the height would be about the same.  I was very surprised to see the M6 with EVF sitting well ...

    Pekr, I agree, M6 looks cool but it's called marketing and product differentiation. They do it to make money. Nothing wrong with that.
  • Replied in It's simply...
    Pekr, if you can't see any difference it shouldn't matter to you. Even with my poor eye sight, I can so it matters to me. They could cut the price further by putting on an even lower resolution ...
  • Replied in It's simply...
    I have had the same debate with myself.  I have the M6 on pre-order but went ahead and purchased an M5.  The M5 is a great little camera.  Here is what I am seeing that is leaning me toward ...
