ugh... I love everything about the X-Series Fuji's except how horrific the AF is. And it's unacceptably bad with the 18-55. Was at dinner tonight in a decently lit private room and the XE1 is constantly hunting for focus. Why oh why is the AF so bad???

With any of the prime lenses it would likely be fine but the 18-55 is really, really bad in terms of AF.

Is it just me?

In my experience the zoom is awful in dim light when fully zoomed. I suppose it is the f4 aperture. It gets better when at 28mm equiv. Still the AF needs serious improvements to compete.
