I've now spent a day with the XT1 and the manual, getting things set up the way I want them and just getting used to the camera a bit. Hopefully, I'll be doing plenty of shots of running dogs in the near future which will be better tests. Still, I am not disappointed by the XT1 so far.

Glad you like your X-T1, I didn't want to offend you, just to notice that tracking test at this focal length and aperture is not relevant to real world tracking we always mean.
I'm still on the fence for getting X-T1 or not, mostly due to mixed reviews about focus speed and tracking (told that speed is not much improved over my X-E1). Good EVF and tilting screen are nice to have, but not when you miss shots because of sloppy AF and shutter lag.
