The Preamble:

Yes, I know that CDAF is never going to be PDAF.

Yes, I know there are various workarounds that will coax better moderate-low light AF performance from the Fuji X cams.

Yes, I know that the more these workarounds are used, the more natural they become, to the point of not seeming like workarounds.

Yes, I know someone will respond to this thread by saying that they only shoot black cats at night in dense fog and never have a problem with Fuji AF.

Okay, that said, why is it that Fuji continues to lag far behind the class leaders in CDAF performance? How is it that Fuji can write software code that borders on magic in terms of IQ, but can't seem to do it for what would seem like the easier task of improving their CDAF? Why is it that two years after the release of the X100, and several cameras later, the #1 complaint about Fuji X cams remains AF performance in moderate-low light?

Indeed, and the rest of the other problems too, like proper RAW software, darn EVF lag/shake/shiver, etc.

Anyway, when it works, it's a so-so camera that gives splendid images, serves me well while waiting for the Leica M. I won't wait for Fuji to fix their issues, they take years (or never)

Oh, the AF doesn't bother me, obviously, it's other stuff ...
