X100s AF compared to X100 (non-scientific)

Re: 1.01 > 1.02 Firmware

I have the X100 on FW 2.0 and the X100s on FW 1.03, and I can confirm the same observation that in low-light, the X100 is much snappier in terms of focusing both in AF-S and MF (using AEL/AFL button) than the newer X100s. The latter hunts a lot in low-light, often ending up not finding focus at all depending on the subject, whereas the X100 will almost always find focus with much less hunting.

I'm not too worried for now. I'm looking forward to future FW upgrades from Fuji that will hopefully significantly improve the X100s AF performance, as they have done for the X100. They will come, won't they?
