    I'm not normally a JPG shooter but its fun to do it with the 50R, though I'd always be doing RAW as well, its just great to have jpg available out of the camera for many purposes, especially online use.

    Re: FUJIFILM GFX 50S, 50R, 100, etc. ... Peculiarities

    This is a question fro 32-64 users, in particular on the 50R.

    When I turn the camera on, and almost continually thereafter, there's a noise that's similar to the focusing noise for the lens. This happens when the shutter button is not depressed and when the autofocus is not set to continuous. This happens with 2 different copies of the lens.

    So 3 questions: Does your 32-64 do this? What's causing it? Is it "normal"?

    Apparently this only happens in the southern hemisphere.

    If mine does it I do not hear it.

    Ahh I see, that explains it all

    Somebody did suggest that it was the OIS....which this lens doesn't have

    In the manual, quote:

    Regardless of the option selected, manual focus will be used when the lens is in manual focus mode.
    If ON is selected for AF/MF SETTING > PRE-AF, focus will be adjusted continuously in modes S and C even when the shutter button is not pressed.


    Do you have PRE-AF set too ON or OFF?

    Re: FUJIFILM GFX 50S, 50R, 100, etc. ... Peculiarities

    Thank you...I'm impressed on a number of levels. Firstly you appear to have read the manual, that in itself is an act of steely determination given the poor quality of the manual. Secondly you appear to have hit on at least part of the issue.

    PRE-AF was ON and turning it OFF _limits_ the amount of action by the lens, without eliminating it entirely.

    So thank you for that. The search continues. I'm really interested if others are hearing anything from their 32-64 when not focusing. Both copies of the lens that I have tried have emitted noise when not focusing.

    Mine does a very faint intermittent tick if I move the camera around but not if held still. (That's in m,c or s).

    Thanks Alan, I think that's what mine now does with PRE-AF OFF.

    I have pre-af off too so I would say it is normal function and give it no more thought.

    I tend to just turn the music up louder. At least, that's what I do when the car or truck starts making an unfriendly noise. Works every time.

    For those who may not have seen this, it gives some insight into the development of the GFX100

    Re: FUJIFILM GFX 50S, 50R, 100, etc. ... Peculiarities

    Hi All,

    I suspect this lens is going right back to B&H. GF 250/4 on GFX 100 As I turn the aperture ring between 5.6 and 16, the reported apertures to the camera are very weird. Here's the sequence of 1/3 stop clicks from 5.6:
    5.6
    5.6
    5.0
    5.0 (should be 8)
    4.0
    4.0
    13 (should be 11)
    13
    14
    16

    Worse, the camera shoots at the weird number, not where the ring is set.

    Anyone seen this before? I'm updated to latest firmware on camera and lens. Doesn't happen with other lenses.

    More minor problem - the rear control wheel is very hard to turn without pushing it in and activating its button, i.e., magnified view. Is this a common difficulty?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    I don't see this behavior with other lenses, so I'm guessing it's the lens.

    In regards to the control wheel, yes, it is, IMO, a design flaw. Unless I use my fingernail to turn it there is a tendency for it to click inward, and not provide the desired function.

    Re: FUJIFILM GFX 50S, 50R, 100, etc. ... Peculiarities

    Just received the 100 a couple of hours ago and must say I'm impressed. I was originally put off on the size when it was first announced however actually getting it in my hands I feel better.

    Yes, it is large (I'd compare it to when I shot a Canon 1DsII). As large as it is it still feels comfortable in my hands.

    I've updated all the lenses as well as the latest firmware for the body without any issue.

    I've got most of the LCD screens set as I'd like knowing that I'll change them if needed.

    I don't miss not having actual buttons as I rarely used them on the 50s instead using the front and rear wheels.

    I like the top LCD screen which is something I liked on the Phase XF.

    I like the little screen in the rear and have that set to show the histogram.

    I'm sure there will be a learning curve of some sort however the menu appear to be similar to the 50.

    We're currently in the Jackson Hole area shooting the past week and will begin tomorrow with the 100. Looking forward to seeing what this beast can do with wildlife and landscape.

    Almost forgot to add a comment on the burst speed - I believe I'll be able to almost keep up with Sandy's A7r IV.

    Re: FUJIFILM GFX 50S, 50R, 100, etc. ... Peculiarities

    Matt, are you able to try that lens on a different GFX body? Either another 100 or one of the 50 bodies? Might narrow the issue down.

    Matt, Also... though I suspect you've already tried this, but just in case... try cleaning the lens contacts. Perhaps contaminated in some way during packaging?

    It does sound like a wonky lens, though. Hope you get it sorted / exchanged quickly.

    Even if that worked, I would wonder what *else* went wrong in its assembly. The AF ring is also looser than on my other GF lenses.

    No, onely the one. My GAS isn't THAT bad... yet...

    Thanks guys,

    Matt

    BTW, the 250mm is a seriously awesome piece of glass: so sharp, the AF isn't good enough and only magnified assisted MF will do. Ditto the 100-200/5.6. I thought it was an ok, not great, lens until I manually focused it.

    Tomorrow morning: Walk into B&H. Explain the problem. Get a new copy on the spot or for next day delivery. They have always taken my word for it on returns. I might bring the camera body along to demonstrate. Oh, another symptom - wiggling the aperture ring can cause big jumps in the reported f-stop. It really is a wonky lens.

    As predicted: lens replaced by B&H. New copy optically and operationally great.

    Thanks Don.

    It will be interesting to compare high ISO capabilities between the 100 and the A7rIV mainly with respect to banding which some are talking about where the 100 is worse than the Sony. I refer to Jim Kasson's thoughts, but must carefully read his actual analysis. Digiloyd makes banding complaints.

    Re: FUJIFILM GFX 50S, 50R, 100, etc. ... Peculiarities

    Techart EF-GFX adapter. It almost works on the GFX100. It communicates aperture properly. I didnt check AF as I would use it with the 24 TS-E.

    But (you knew there was a but), IS is jumpy, weird, and worse than useless (yes, I registered the lens/adapter just in case). Now the weird part. If I turn the adapter past vertical, the IS works, but the lens aperture is no longer recognized.

    Ill wait until the bugs get worked out before jumping back in. Id worry about my camera, but every other lens, save the first 250/4, works perfectly.
