Funny how if I miss a shot I generally blame myself and my failure to anticipate the moment whereas many seem to blame their equipments perceived shortcomings. I'm obviously too hard on myself....

Couldn't agree more. I always shake my head in disbelief whenever I read about people complaining about the slow AF of the Fujis. Yes, it is slower than a DSLR but not that slow. How did photographers ever shoot action back before the days of autofocus?

I own an X-Pro1, an x100s and Nikon D700 full frame camera. If I miss a certain shot on the Fujis I will most likely make the same mistake on my Nikon (or any other camera).
