It is the lens being used in the first video I linked above at time 4:52. That is how the lens maintains a constant aperture, same as my Fuji 10-24 f4 (see my post above, Thursday August 6). I was thinking the 18-55 was doing some sort of ISO stepping, but putting the lens to my ear I can hear faint clicking that sounds like aperture stepping while zooming at above f4. So the new X-T4 firmware may not fix this. The OIS is strong in this lens, great for hand holding in one position. It may be overly strong for panning shots since there is little ease-out when coming to a stop and appears too abrupt. So I pan slowly with OIS on. I have several old 35mm SLR zoom lenses that work best for zoom shots. They have manual aperture rings (no stepping) and are very parfocal so they don't rely on the camera's auto focus. They are also a small fraction of the cost of new Fuji zooms, and use $20 adapters. Good to know! I was going to say, the OIS in this kit lens is better than any I’ve ever had. I have a few Nikon primes I’ll eventually buy a dumb adapter/speedbooster for. Particularly my 100mm 2.8 e series Nikon prime. Really enjoying this camera so far, especially the colors. ade towell 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
