That is embarrassing for Sony

First, the focusing works on that camera.

While Sony's latest offer only 2 frames per second while focusing, this camera does 8. Not only that but the focusing WORKS on something moving!

Even worse there are examples with the XF56mmF1.2 R lens wide open. The longest APS prime is an average 50mm F/1.8 that can't get anywhere near the shallow DoF as the Fuji, and that lens takes FOREVER to acquire focus. The longest NEX lens is the average F/6.3 55-210 and Fuji has the 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS which is better in every way, and now has a camera that will make it great for fast action too.

Mirrorless cameras are considered 2nd tier when it comes to focusing and Sony has just moved in to 4th place in that 2nd tier. Make that 5th place, I forgot Nikon.

When does the Fuji go on sale again?
