  • Hello, Lucker. I don’t own an Atomos Ninja V but last year I rented it some times to shoot a project in LOG. I set the Legalize option to ON because in this way it shows in the Ninja monitor the ...

    I think I have already exposed my problem concerning softness on the borders and constant autofocus errors with the 56mm and my XT3. And I also wrote a bit about my experience with Fuji support ...

    Robert1955 said he wasn’t convinced by my testing and observations, but when I offered more details about my experience, he didn’t say anything about them, he just tried to explain Fuji’s position ...

    OK, so, if you don’t work for Fuji, you are just giving your opinion. The lens that was replaced was previously “repaired”, without solving the problem I noticed. And if they didn’t notice anything ...

    I don’t want to hear what? What are you talking about? Please answer me these questions: Do you work for Fujifilm? Do you work for any other photography company?

    So, if that is the case, is that the way this corporation communicates with the client? Assuming that I can understand what the word “courtesy” in a piece of paper means for them? OK… Wouldn’t be ...
  • Really, I am not convinced. When I ask if the lens is working normally, I am asking genuinely. What I am saying is that if my lens works normally, it is strange that a lot of people don’t notice ...

    OK, that is a point of view. Maybe you are too easily impressed by “kind words”. If they really were courteous and attentive to the client, they would have refunded me or at least give me another ...

    It is not a question of depth of field. There are two problems. First, when I focus on the sides, the borders are soft, kind of ghostly. This is especially true when using the bigger apertures and ...

    How is that? They accepted a replacement because I talked to B&H and explained them that after the “repair” I got the same results. And so they managed to ask Fuji’s manager about a refund or ...
  • Replied in Try this…
    Yes, but first I should sell this lens, if Fuji can’t offer an explanation or solution. I use AF and I bought this lens for using it with AF. For portraits, manual focus is not an option for me. ...

    The manager didn’t answer my last email. So I am going to write to him again demanding an explanation from someone. Basically I want them to tell me if the lens is working as it should.

    It is not the same lens, apparently. I looked at the EXIF and the serials are different. Also, I found a photograph of my old lens. And in this one the serial was printed in the plastic of the ...

    I tried your quick focus method and it didn’t work for me. I think it is worse because it misses the focus completely more often than with the two-steps method.
  • Replied in Try this…
    I am just saying that it is possible. I talked to the manager. He is the one who “replaced” the lens. He said we could see options when he received the lens, but he sent me the lens without ...
  • Replied in Try this…
    I realized that the serial number is on an adhesive label, so basically it is technically possible that it is my old lens with a new label. The manual and the pouch are the same. And to be honest, ...
  • Replied in Try this…
    OK, OK… I tried once with low light and sometimes it didn’t focus. But I will try it again with more light. Thank you.
  • Replied in Try this…
    What is the difference between the method you mentioned and half-pressing the button, confirming that the box is green, and then pressing the button? Unless the object is moving, I don’t see any ...
  • Replied in Try this…
    I am going to try this technique the next time. But, you press the button in a very tiny fraction of a second. Does the lens always manage to focus in that very short time?
  • Thank you for the advice. It is all very complicated to me because I live in another country. The Fuji equipment is imported. And to send a lens to USA costs like 150 dollars and I have to wait a ...
