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 “offered” 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 it’s 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.
