    My new 27mm just started acting up. Took 5 pics then it starts saying "turn camera off then turn camera on". No luck

    Exchanged it at Samys. Tried old one on their camera and it did the same. As much as I like on line purchases, this is a good reason to support your local dealer.

    Looking to buy one of these... How many people have been affected by this? Starting to think that buying a used version is a bad idea.

    There are three or four on this site only which is really high for the sample size. I was going to buy one used to save some money, but now I'm thinking it would be better to buy it new and have the warranty. Either way I'll eventually grab one because I want the size for a general purpose carry everywhere lens.

    Mine is fine (so far!) and I like this little lens.

    Or Adorama or B&H.

    30 day no questions asked guarantee...overnight shipping...there are no camera shops where I live..I have no choice but I've always been satisfied with these two.

    You live near Samy's?

    Almost 4 years later one more XF27 issue, the front element of the lens didn't retract correctly, no filter attached.
