    That's too bad, a well placed zoom can be a real asset to the shot.

    Latest update on this issue. I finally spoke with Fuji UK about this issue and waited on the phone while they tried to replicate it their end.
    They came back to me and fully agreed that this does happen with their zoom lenses however didn't admit it was a fault.
    The work around they suggested was to take the camera out of fully manual mode and put the aperture in 'auto' which does indeed stop the exposure shift when zooming in and out but obviously gives no control over the depth of field which is a shame.
    I asked them to flag it up to Fuji's technicians in the hope the problem can be addressed in a firmware update at some later stage.
