Re: Are the current Fuji prime lenses future-proofed

The three prime lenses out so far are very good. They are sharp and in my opinion should give outstanding results for many years. The X series is something Fuji has invested in heavily and by all appearances will continue to do so.

Nothing is future proof. You could walk off the curb and get hit by a truck (God forbid) at any moment. Just how much better would you prefer the lenses to be? I agree that AF might be improved but for resolution, corner sharpness, all the stuff that matters these lenses are great.

My approach to slow AF: Patience. It actually helps composition as well. I am not convinced that the lenses are limited by their motors. I suspect that an X Pro 2 or 3 which could use the legacy lenses will have the kind of AF detection that will speed up the process regardless of the motors. I base this on the simple fact that most of the delay in getting focus is the "hunting" done in the present camera body.
