Re: this is Fuji issue, not CDAF

Sony Nex, Olympus, and Panasonic cameras with CDAF all show blazing fast AF, only thing lagging behind PDAF would be subject tracking.

I remember it took a few years for Olympus to catch up to Panasonic's AF speed, and I'm sure Fuji is going through the same learning curve.

Just Shoot !

I'd take issue with you in relation to the Sony NEX 7, at least. I owned that and enjoyed it, but AF was no better than the X-Pro, in my view. It was a frequent occurrence that I missed shots because the camera could not focus, or would not focus accurately. It just seems to me that the case is overstated by many, and I get about as many red frames on my Fuji as I got green dotted borders on my NEX.

Yes, and with the lineup of native E-mount lenses, the image quality out of the NEX line is just above mediocre.  I have and NEX 5N, and I only use it for video or if my girlfriend wants to use it, as she likes it's size and the graphical menu (go figure).
