86,000 + PDAF pixels. That sounds like a lot. Has that increased over the X100s? I thought it was the same sensor.

Greg.

From the article linked above:

"The X-E2's sensor also includes phase detection pixels to assist autofocus, as previously seen on the X100S. There are 86,000 of these all told, covering 36% of the sensor's area in the centre of the frame."

Yes, I'm worried.  Haven't seen the issue addressed at all technically so far.  Maybe it makes no difference...
