So I just bought a factory refurb X-A1 from the Fuji UK site for the not unreasonable sum of £199 including Super EBC xc 16-50mm 3.5 - 5.6 lens. However I've noticed a couple of things and I'm not sure if I should ask Fuji to look at it.
1 - There is a very slight, almost imperceptible smudge on the sensor. Only visible from certain angles.
2 - The Zoom barrel control seems rather stiff, smooth, not gritty or anything just stiff. Almost like an old school grease and metal lens in cold weather.
I don't believe the smudge has any noticeable impact on image quality but haven't had a chance to look really closely yet.
Is the lens meant to be stiff/does it loosen with use?
They are both realistically quite minor issues but I'm in two minds at the moment!
Thanks everyone, some amazing images on here. Think I've got a lot of practicing to do!
Or rather woof woof...
Considering the poor light today, this combo worked nicely.

I just got my X-Pro1 yesterday. I have updated firmware to the latest. I want to edit the file name to something unique, just as I do on my Nikon D810. There is a menu option under 3 in the set-up for this. However, I can not make it work. How do I set the new file name.

I haven't done much photography recently, this was take some time ago but only processed today, late afternoon sun kissing the rocks at Birubi Point, one of my favorite places near my home. A 4 image manual blend in Photoshop CS5, plus Topaz Clarity, Detail and a touch of Nik Color Efex Pro. Taken with an XT1 and 18-135 lens @ 18.5mm.
Have recently bought a XE-2 with a pancake F-2.8 - 27 mm ( 35 eqvi ) lens, the lens has a filter on it, which I all ways have on.
The lens hood ( Fuji ) is great, but I can not attach it, as I have to take off the filter, so the hood will screw onto the thread.
I want to shoot with the hood on and a filter ( UV ) so the lens is protected, and I can reduce glare, what are the choice's?
Where I live UV during the summer months is very high, hence glare is high too.
I'm not sure whether this has been posted here before but entries close soon

...and it went well.
The thing is silent and incredibly fast at focus acquisition. I moved away from it when the light dropped but using it with AF-C on the X-T1 today during the after service stuff was really quite fun.
I'm not sure about the little lens hood though. Mine seems stuck on already and I can't remove it!!!
I just had to reshoot some of my camera gear with the new fuji 35mm f2 lens, just placed lenses on the dressing table and used one light with a reflecter opposite.
16-50mm mkII kitlens
The edge of the dressing table just melts away to nothing, such is the shallow field of focus; all taken wide open at F/2, yet pin sharp where needed, this lens just blows my tiny little mind
As a newbie to the world of Fuji cameras and the Fuji X Forum, I’d like to say hi and share with you how I arrived here. I developed a passion for photography several years ago and currently own a couple of Canon DSLRs and several lenses which have served me well through my learning and development. However, last summer I decided to look for a smaller, take anywhere camera to compliment my heavier gear. After much research and soul-searching, I stumbled upon this forum and settled on the X100T.
Firstly, I’d like to congratulate you all on a great forum! Your knowledge, humor and sense of community have tipped me over the edge with my first Fuji purchase and the first forum I've actually signed up to! Secondly, the camera. I know you don’t need me to tell you what a fine piece equipment this is, what a beautiful body it has, and the gorgeous images this camera allows me to create. If I could remember that far back, I am certain the feelings of discovery I’m currently experiencing with this camera would be comparable to the feelings I experienced when I first learned to walk…
Which brings me to the title of my post. Is it just me or do any of you sometimes have the urge just to pick up and hold your Fuji X? Not necessarily to create images but just to hold it in your hands? I never felt like this with my Canon...or indeed any other inanimate object! Maybe it is just me and if that's the case, I’d better go seek some counselling.
