What's all this about "slow" AF with X-E1/X-Pro1??
1

I have never owned or used any of these models, except my X10, but what's up with all this complaints about returning the camera because of AF?  Are this type of people using the camera in COMPLETE darkness or something?  I am just trying to understand what all this is about.

I do understand the X-E1/X-pro1 limitations comapred to other cameras out there, but only based on these two video samples bellow i don't see what the problem is at all.  To me these cameras focus completely fine.  They are not for fast continuous shooting, but i see that they focus just fine as any normal camera should.

Could it be that some of this claims are done by fuji marketters trying to brain wash you into having to spend money on the next new camera model making you think that you NEED it?

Again, based on what i am seeing in these youtube videos i honestly don't see what the problem is.  Heck, my cheap X10 does not give me AF problems.
