Hi There,

Ralph, while I use to own a Fuji bridge cam, and like, it in many ways, but there was lot of things at the same time that I don't miss at all from point-and shoot type of cam..and AF SPEED is one of them!....For instance,I tried out the XS-1 in my local camera store, as I was thinking to get one at one point, and oh my goodness i was never able to lock FOCUS in florescent light environment no matter the settings, ( I gave to the vendor and I can assure you, he was going banana!

I had the EXACT same experience as you did.  I tried out a good dozen X-S1's in the shops, both here in China as well as in London.  Every last time I could not get the camera to simply lock focus in the shop if even a moderate amount of zoom was used.  I could not believe how poor the auto focus was and was extremely disappointed.  I think that goes a long way to explain why the images from this camera are so soft.  It is hard to see the point in a camera with such poor autofocus.

Doesnt Fuji test their products in all light??
