Two shots. First with the 18-55 in bulb (secured on tripod using my hand). Second is with adapted Minolta 600mm f/5.6, probably at around f/11 I'm not sure.

For some reason the 600mm isn't quite hitting infinity focus correctly. I thought at first it was the NEX adapter I had used on my NEX5N, but now on the Fuji same thing - it just gets barely close, but not quite infinity. I took apart the front element assembly but there's no way to adjust it, that I know of. Ah well.

On my way to work this morning, I found this armchair just sitting right in the middle of an abandoned parking lot. I use this lot to sometimes cut around traffic to get to a side road, and it's never been there before...but today, there it is, just sitting right in the middle of the lot.

Hell yes, easier AF selection coming tomorrow, about damn time. It's really too bad Fuji doesn't remove it's head from it's arse and do things the EASY way.

1) They plan to allow an Fn function of "AF selection". And, they plan to allow you to make the Down arrow another "Fn" button.

That's all good, but it would have been much more intuitive to just enable the AF selection full-time using the 4-way, then allow the "AF" button to become Fn2 essentially.

Holy hell people, it's not hard ><

This is like my biggest complaint about the Fuji system that I have to use two hands to change af points. I would rather prefer it works as you suggested.

Except that the buttons already have functions - left/right adjusts shutter speed and up enables/disables macro mode.

...Meaning they could enable a "full time" mode on the 4-way

I mean, c'mon, they launch the X system as a higher-end enthusiast compact and put in a "macro" button, really? The logic is perplexing. (that said, I didn't realize left/right was shutter adjustment until you said it Which is fine, I've been living off of full stop shutter adjustments just dandy haha). Maybe let the rear wheel adjust shutter in 1/3 stops in the "full time" AF mode when not in magnify view.



In other news, just updated to 1.06, the default down arrow going to AF selection makes the camera 10 times easier to select the AF point!

It's not as fast as I would want it (you have to wait a mini-second before the AF box selection appears, but I'm testing in a cave so maybe that's slowing the camera down), but it's a HELL of a lot better than jamming my thumb up my nose.

Now Fuji, repeat after me "minimum shutter selection with AutoISO". You can do it

Yeah, that's why Sit-ty driving scares me...I'm more of a rural guy

It is amazing how such a little change can make things feel so much better. It is now eminently easier to change the AF point now.

It's really nice to see that Fuji is one of the few companies that truly listens to their customers with regards to firmware updates. The AF button position was something harped on in most every review and on message boards. They've made major improvements in these cameras through FW updates, and it sounds like the July update will be even bigger, adding focus peaking and faster AF to the whole line. Awesome.

It does make more work for me as a reviewer, though, as I now have to edit my review, and will again in July.

So, I passed that abandoned lot again today to see if the chair was still there. It was, but had either been knocked over by a car or the wind or something. It conveniently fell in pretty much the perfect place compositionally. I did not reposition the chair (on either day). It's as I found it:

Nice. I guess we can expect it for the whole X range too. Although I never saw a need for it on my X100.
