In fine working order it seems! Just ran it through a battery, changed it out, and didn't have to reset anything! Woot!

Took this yesterday:
X-Pro1; Fuji 60mm Macro; Fotasy 10 and 16 tubes; 1/8 sec; f/11; ISO 1600

Seems to me an internal battery should have lasted longer than 6 months. The internal battery on my old KM7 lasted nearly 5 years. I am currently considering purchasing a new camera in the next several months. If this is not a user replaceable battery it causes me to reconsider looking at Fuji as my next purchase. I would not want to have to send a camera in twice a year for nothing more than a battery replacement.

Just thinking out loud.

The body I have was the floor model, so the camera was already well loved when I got it.

No question that this was abnormal and shouldn't have happened. But I wouldn't condemn Fuji because of it, as there are many Fuji cameras out there that have never experienced this issue, including my X100S and X-E2.
