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

No pictures just a broken 100s..... My 100s mechanical shutter sticks when used in the portrait position. It's rare for me to use the mechanical shutter but recently I was shooting in some wind and wanted some additional stability so switched to EF mode and a higher ISO and after shooting an image got an error message to turn off/turn on camera but that didn't help. I was able to get everything working by orientating the camera to landscape position. No problems when in that position. It is 100% repeatable with no card or lens attached so a repair or replacement is necessary. I'm a couple of months out of warranty but this has been an issue with the 100s so maybe Fuji will honor it as a warranty.

Still have my Sony 7RM4 and my 4150 so it's not the end of the world but still kind of a bummer.

$800.00. I toyed with just having them send the camera back but some day I'll want to sell it and I would never sell a defective item. 6 nice bottles of wine.....
