Have you wondered why Fujifilm increased contrast/ decreased DR in X-E2/ X-T1?

While I was clicking portraits of my nieces behind the windshield of my car, my X-E1 was unable to focus accurately due to low contrast in the scene then it clicked to my mind as why Fujifilm would have increased contrast or decreased DR in X-E2/ X-T1. The major complaints that Fujifilm was hearing from its customers was about slow AF so they made all best efforts to improve it and increase in contrast or decrease in DR is one of the measures they took.

Even if AF would have improved in X-E2/ X-T1, I will still pick X-E1 because I prefer more DR over a bit better AF. I understand that preferences change as per needs so yours might be different from mine

P.S. Well, while writing it, I just remembered that they have phase detect AF in newer cameras, well, I don't know, there might be a hybrid version of it.
