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

One of the major keys to focusing any camera is to select a good focus target. The camera does not see and analyze the world the way a human brain does. This is at the heart of many disappointments. Learn how the camera sees, then think like the camera. have a good contrast target and adjust the size of the focus box accordingly to accommodate that contrast.

Even with nikon and canon products most people do not understand the difference between a cross sensor and non-cross sensor and know which are which. Many consumer DSLR's have only one cross center in the center. Once a person understands that, they get many more keepers. Fuji is not a speed demon but great for stills as it can take a few seconds to find a focus target and, if necessary, adjust focus box size.

If you shoot fast and can't slow down, then look elsewhere.

At least compared to a dslr focus on a fuji is dead on accurate when you do everything right, front and back focus problems not possible. Speed or accuracy? I know, I know. Both!
