similar to autofocus fixes fuji also addressed a number of manual focus problems with the x e1 release the initial implementation of manual focus on the x pro1 was terrible it is much better and faster now with firmware 2 0 but i am still not very happy with the number of turns i have to make to go from close distance to far and vice versa
