I had in the Cart, for the heck placed the order got immediate confirmation, with shipping I think it was saying 2 days FedEx, but I also cancel it within 5 minutes, since I actually do not wat that Camera and I am not into reselling, it was kind of ďofferedĒ on the top of the page where I was actually buying Elmarit-M 28 ASPH for M that just got here on the Forum, so it likely was available for a short time frame, or I might be wrong, but I had it.

To anyone stuck on a waiting list: it is possible to grab one of these from Best Buy by using their chat interface. Seems like stock is hitting their warehouses on a weekly basis (every Thursday?). And you can get one in inventory before itís listed on their website.

I was able to order one on 4/11 using this method. It arrived yesterday. Good luck

Got my X100VI back today from Fuji repair. They say they replaced the lens assembly.

One thing they didn't do was actually test the camera to see if they fixed it. Because they didn't. At all. Tested against a brick wall, perfectly leveled, standing about 10 feet away, if I focus at the top of the frame, the top bricks are sharp, and by the time I reach the middle of the frame, it's out of focus, and the bottom of frame is in focus 4 feet in front of the wall.

Exact same issue as when I sent it in. I called Fujifilm again, and they want to expedite return it back to them, but I also called my camera store again and am hoping they will just be able to get me a new body soon. However, they say they still haven't gotten a single shipment since the second batch (which is when I got mine). So who knows if they even can get one soon too.

Just been a terrible experience so far. Really bummed.

EDIT: I will say, that if I focus using the center of the frame (top to bottom), the depth of field generally covers the tilt issue to a degree that it's only noticeable in some circumstances at certain focus distances. The problems is more pronounced at moderate focus distances (4-15 feet away) than it is close up (where it is effectively not a problem at all if you focus in the center). Focusing at the edge, though, really shows where the error is, even closer up.

Well that sucks. Did you submit example images to them when you opened the ticket? Curious if they just basically disregarded those.

They did not ask for them when I first sent it in. I provided a letter detailing the problem, and expected them to request images, but they did not. I did send images to them tonight, as they contacted me after my phone call requesting them. See also the edit I just made as you were posting in the previous message.

I couldn't even get it to show up on the mobile app. By the time I got to my laptop at about 9pm and 30 seconds it was gone. I wasn't very hopeful.

Yeah, I forgot about it and remembered about ten minutes before and kept refreshing until the checkout button highlighted. No biggie. Iím sure Iíll win the lottery instead and it will all workout Ö. powerball, not the x100vi

My X100VI is on its way back to Fujifilm...I'm hoping they just send me a new camera back. I mean, if they fix it, that's great too, but I have my doubts this is an easy fix. Just hope it's back before I go to Italy.

If it helps a pre order I placed on Feb 27 just shipped on Friday. Was not from B&H though, but may indicate another round of deliveries.

Dpreview published an interesting article on X100VI. I have not used VI, but as a long time X100 user, currently using X100V, I found the writing very interesting.

https://www.dpreview.com/opinion/4347917263/has-the-x100vi-taken-a-little-too-much-from-fujifilm-s-other-cameras

Perhaps Fuji has come to a point where they should simplify X100 series and concentrate on the very basic functions? This is how I see X100VII from my point of view

You can't win as a camera maker. Add more control options, people whine. Take them away, people whine.

Article sounds like a clumsy, heavy-handed user that isn't very savvy. Those aren't real world problems.
