    Greeting everybody,
    I have the fujifilm xs1, has been with me for 2 years. Recently the camera lost ability for auto focus, near objects are fine. But when zooming in, everything becomes blurry.
    Firmware updated. On auto mode and af. Still nothing. I also tried the exp mode. Still blurry.

    No damage to the camera...
    Any ideas?

    Does it have a macro mode?
    If it does is the macro mode turned on?

    It sounds to me exactly like the x10 in macro mode. As soon as you zoom from the widest setting it gets all unhappy,

    My X-S1 is similarly unhappy with AF when zoomed in too far, just like my HS25exr was. I find that towards the latter third of the zoom bar, that manual focus is a must in most situations for me :\
