Fuji 60mm F2.4 works very well
I have upgrade to the latest firmware, lens focus is right on, very little hunting ,focus locks easily, just make sure your focus dot is completely on the contrasty part of the subject and use the corrected AF selection

Nice! I've placed the 60mm in the cart, and then deleted, then put it back in, then deleted again, a few times!
Current Gear: A little bit of this and a little bit of that, but want more!

It is good to hear a positive report on that lens. It has not gotten a lot of good press.

The thing with this lens is you have to use the corrected AF on SAF and pay attention that the square covers the object of focus, it also worked well tracking in CAF and was near perfect with the AFL button in manual focus.

Just received my 60, updated the firmware to 1.02--now heading off tomorrow to try it out. I have been photographing for over 45 years, and have been through every format and type of camera, but the X Pro 1 is the perfect fit for me. Thanks, Fuji!

I wish I could afford this camera. I just have to live vicariously through you all. Thanks for sharing!

I'm quite impressed with the pics I'm seeing from this lens.
I just received my 60 yesterday and have not had a chance to get out and shoot with it yet. I now have all three! So far, with the few pictures I've taken with this camera I LOVE IT! I do wish Fuji would find a way to increase the size of the framing lines when using the optical viewfinder with the 60mm, just a minor glitch I'm sure I'll get used to.
Have any of you found a lens cap that fits over the 60's lens hood? Trying to put that little pinch cap on with the hood attached is quite a pain!
Love all the helpful hints and advice I get on this forum!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Thanks for doing my homework for me!

Thanks again and enjoy your walk with Ruby and the other pooches, and PLEASE stay out of the vet!
