    Today my XF 27 broke. When I turned on the camera it said "Turn camera off and on again.", but that didn't change anything. I noticed the front element of the lens didn't retract correctly, was stuck quite far out and moved only a tiny bit on turn on/off. Has this happend to anybody else so far?
    I sent it in right away and wonder how Fujifilm will react.

    Don't have the 27mm, but my first 60mm front fell off while putting the lens hood on *correctly* after owning it for 3 days. I returned mine to store and got a new one that was perfect from the release date until last week when I sold it.

    probably just unlucky person who got the defect :/

    Hope all goes well :)

    Welcome to the forum Dirk. Hope you get the issues resolved quickly. How long did you have it for?

    I have a XF27 coming next week.

    This typically happens when users attach filters that extend to more than 39mm at the other end. Like (too) thin mall step up rings.

    I had it for about 3 months. Put a 39mm Filter on the first day and never took it off. Just until I sent it in yesterday. ;)
    What I dimly recall is the lens did lock up once in the beginning but didn't show those symptoms ever since.
    Found another thread over at: http://www.fujix-forum.com/index.php/topic/12168-bad-27mm/
    Not an overwhelming amount of reports though.

    Did they state what the issue was?

    They wrote that they did repair the AF motor. And that they are sorry.
