I had a Nikon 85 f2 AIS that did the same thing. Off camera I could turn the focus ring and it was silent. On camera it make a loud squeak.
Helicoils were dry.

Instax is fine for what it is. The wide one is almost a decent size. What sucks is Fuji doesn't really make a decent camera to use it. I have their high end retro 90 (I think it is called that)...

This exactly. Maximize the OVF frame lines to the lens being used. That would have been so sweet and worth the premium.

So as you say you use it as an EVF camera. You like it because the VF is on the left side not the middle.
Completely fair points.
Then again an XE3 would have served those purposes too, and the...

See the thing is a camera like a D850 actually works really really well if you use it as a MF DSLR. W/O even having to look at the in focus confirmation dots. Beautiful OVF. It also has excellent...

That will make the most sense if you are into MF lenses, as the EVF is where it is at. The OVF on the Xpro3 is very kludgy for MF lenses, it needs to be in EVF...

Only useful if you use an AF lens as the MF is way too kludgy. Much better to use EVF for MF. Frame lines in OVF way too small, really disappointing.

I think the optical finder is ok when using AF, but let down by the tiny frame lines.
This camera is a hard pass for me as it could be so much better, and it is strange that it isn't.
