Re: auto ISO sucks with X cameras

Wouldn't call it a rule, at most a rule of thumb. That is: an averagely steady photographer could expect an acceptably sharp result using such a setting. But the tripod crowd will tell you they can achieve far better results. For two cups of coffee, you'd need to add at least one stop of shutter speed. And so on: many variables would have to be taken into account [which AFAIK the previous Fuji implementation did not] by making it user settable.

So I think, while a better implementation [choice] is imaginable,  your thread title is a fail.

In my humble experience, 1/f is ok for 35mm format but lower is ok for medium format and higher is necessary for APS (more like 1/2f).

Auto ISO parameters can be changed, manual is dead easy to drop into. The X-T1 needs a bit more forethought than previous X cameras owing to the ISO dial - different Auto ISO presets are not an option although I'm sure that they could be re-implemented as a programmable option for use when the dial is in the A position.

I have to say that I've never been caught out by the current methods and that an automatic 1/f would take me back to early X-E1 days (it used to have this), i.e. a bit of a pain because it's too slow.

The rule 1/f applies for 35mm format (f must be converted if the sensor has another format).

This is the way it works on most cameras who have this mode with non OIS lenses.

As far as I remember, it was the case for x-e1. It was fine for me.
