I took several pics of a chart with the same settings of aperture, shutter speed and iso in manual mode with tripod and go to camera setting where you can adjust the af focus of lens accordingly i.e plus or minus to pick the best clarity for this setting. Pick another aperture and start all over again for this distance.

repeat the whole process at different distance now.

I ended up getting the same adjustment value regardless of the distance. if there is some minor variability then pick the best adjustment value overall for diferrent distance. It took me more than 1-2 hours for one lens. I did the same with my 85 1.2 mm ii and they are all very sharp now.

I hope this will help

Nice Julian! How do you like the x100? I'm very close to getting one myself. All bad things aside, are the goods worth the price?

It's growing on me. I like the construction, feels rather solid/sturdy. It's got weight so it doesn't feel "cheap". It's only been a few days but I haven't really felt hampered by its shortcomings yet. At 35mm-equiv... it's not something that I would try to fire off anything with burst mode for action/sports.

The menu is rather clunky, nothing like Canon's menu system. Autofocus accuracy naturally starts to waiver in low-light (as expected). For all intent and purposes, it's a very expensive P&S. But at least the sensor gives you something nice to work with.

For IQ alone... I wouldn't say it's any better/worse than the Sony NEX. So with that, one has to question whether the extra premium one pays is "worth it" and that determination would be left to each individual buyer.

I see... Thanks for your opinion. So I'm assuming you're not regretting the purchase? :)

Not yet. Considering I haven't paid for it yet, it's hard to regret. :lol: I'm still trying to figure out the best way to carry this thing. I may need to break down and eBay some old-ish rangefinder case. Cuz I heard that Fuji wants some $140 clams for their x100 case.

...

:lol:

I honestly think it is very much worth the price.

That thing is like a Ferrari. I don't make enough to spend on such luxuries. :lol: I'm in the wrong tax bracket. :(
