Xpro1 AF in low light maybe faster than in bright light with XF35mm
May 9, 2012

Hi everyone.

Sorry if this was already posted on this forum but I can't help to bring it back.

To me it seems that AF in low light is a little faster that in bright light because the camera closes the aperture as much as possible to maintain the live preview. When the shutter release is half pressed the aperture opens wide to focus then it closes back for the frame capture (eg: f8, f11).

While in low light (eg: room) the aperture stays wide open and the AF is performed directly and faster of course.

This is happening even if I use only the OVF and there is no need for live preview.

Can anyone else confirm this?

Many thanks.
