I know that to go into autofocus mode the lens ring needs to be pulled out. However mine is completely stuck! I am a member of the Fuji VIP program and have received a faulty lens before. I got this Fuji XF 35mm 1.4 lens 2 years ago but rarely use autofocus. My first time playing with it and I realize the focus ring is completely stuck and will not pull out to autofocus mode. Any suggestions? I have no idea how to fix this if it is even fixable.

    What lens and camera are you using? Please specify the entire model names. – xiota Mar 23 at 20:27

If this is the Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R I think you change the focus mode with the camera body auto/manual switch. I see no reference to a push-pull operation in the lens manual or online reviews...

    I used to have a copy of the XF 35/1.4. It does not have a clutch mechanism. There is an AF/MF switch on most FujiFilm X-series bodies. Some X-A bodies don't have the switch. – xiota Mar 23 at 20:53

    Hi thank you you are right BobT! The Fuji XF 35mm 1.4 does not have the pull out mechanism. I was in auto mode on my camera but did not have PRE-AF turned on my settings. Apologies that my lens and camera specifications were not clear. Thank you both! – Chelsea Craig Mar 24 at 16:32
