Gave you a thumbs up too, thanks for sharing!

One quick question: how does the split image focus work? Any good?

Cheers

Pretty much the same as X100s. Personally, I prefer focus peak highlight. Fuji's implementation of focus peak gives you outline on the entire subject in focus. Where as focus peak on NEX only gives you the highlights on vertical contrast/edges only.

I never had an 100s so no idea what "the same" is ... sorry.

The reason why I am asking is that I find the focus peaking utterly useless on the X-E1. I can see the ants-brigade on some edges but find this not helpful when I use, say, a 105/2.5 Nikkor in manual mode, have tried to focus using the peaking, but get blurry images at best. Since I have used split screen in the past on Leicas and Voigtländer 35 cameras I was wondering whether this would work for me. At this stage it looks like I will have to go to a shotp and try this out for myself ...

Just wanted your opintion on this!

Cheers
