When using continuous drive mode, Fuji cameras do not focus between shots like most DSLRs. Focus and exposure are locked at the first shot. In your example, the camera did not catch up, but the dog moved into the area of focus.

Incorrect (atleast on this camera). That is actually a new feature of the x-e2 and the 3fps burst mode, it refocuses for every shot

There is no mention in the manual of this feature. Neither does it show up in the Fuji marketing materials.

Do you have a link that talks about this? Seems like this only happens while you have the shutter half-pressed (per the manual).

Here you go:

From dpreviews preview

"The 3fps Continuous Low mode will show live view between frames, and attempt to refocus on moving subjects, but only if the camera is set to continuous focus mode (otherwise it just replays recently-taken shots, like the high speed mode)."

Why the manual makes no mention of this? Or Fuji's own website/marketing materials?

It makes me wonder if dpreview got it right (or if Fuji forgot to mention it).

See my post above... It is on the web site at least.. not sure about the manual.. :

"The adoption of the dual CPU, improved computational performance has doubled the processing speed when compared with the previous generation processor** and working in tandem with the high-speed signal readout of the X-Trans CMOS II sensor, raise the maximum continuous shooting speed to 7.0 fps (max. approx. 28 frames)*5, and achieves a maximum continuous shooting speed of 3.0 fps with AF tracking."http://www.fujifilmusa.com/products/digital_cameras/x/fujifilm_x_e2/features/index.html
