Some say AF is faster; some say it is slower. Fuji indicated the firmware was only for the 55-200 lens. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the focus speed is exactly the same as it was before.

It is very common on this forum that some people just see what they want to see, which leads to some ridiculous claims like "better than full frame".

Hey Randy but my Xpro1 is really better than a FF !!!


The fact that many full frame cam owners are preferring to deliver work done with Fuji X-Trans sensor rather than their full frame cams must be kept a secret, otherwise you'll have Randy jumping up and down blowing a valve or something!!

In the end some people will see only what they want to see.

I understand that sometimes APS-C is a better choice than FF. I also understand that sometimes a m4/3 camera is a better choice than APS-C. An Olympus EM5 can match the IQ of Fuji X-Trans in a 13"x19" print. But, I don't call one better than the other, they are just different. I understand the technology well enough to know that the current 16MP APS-C and m4/3 sensors produce about the same amount of resolution and noise if you shoot and process them correctly. I don't get wrapped up in one brand or model. You won't hear me repeating the tag line of my favorite company over and over and over.

I own many cameras, but right now my Fuji X-E1 is my favorite. I don't appreciate those who are overly negative about Fuji. I also don't appreciate those who are so enamored with their toys that they are oblivious to reality. My previous post was directed at both sides; those who claimed improvement and those who claimed the AF is slower. But, Billy could see only half of that. You don't have to worry about me blowing a valve, I understand that some here are emotionally invested in their cameras, but I save my emotions for people.

A clever reply!
