Because of my experience with the Fuji 27mm AF lens, I reviewed the forgotten features of the X-E1. I now have the distance scale displayed in the finder, and can quickly switch from AF to Manual Focus. This something that I had never tried previously, but it seems to work quite well. Hence, the problem, like in most cases, was not with my equipment but was "pilot error". Such is life. :-[

Autofocus can be a blessing when shooting sports, but not if one is shooting through the fence. This friendly umpire chatted with my family members several times between innings, and I attempted to snap a photo. But, as I should have expected, the focus is on the fence wire. And I am not proficient enough at shooting MF with an AF lens to attempt a changeover on the fly.
