X-T2: AF und 18-55


Looking for a second "outdoor" and fun camera, I have been testing some mirrorless this days. I am hesitating between the Fuji X-T2 and Olympus OM5II.

In the shop, from body and handling, I would take the Olympus. It just feels better, and the AF ist quiet snappy and "hunts" only a little. Samples pictures are really sharp (using m.z 12-40 F2,8).

The Fuji X-T2 is said to feature a better overall picture quality. The 18-55 which has been for the samples pictures in the shop, was not exactly sharp. And not as sharp as the Oly.

Moreover, the Fuji X-T2 got BIG issue for focusing: hunting a few seconds, even on simple subject. I noticed, that this model only had firmware 1.1.

My question to X-T2 owners:

  1. What are you experience with the XF 18-55 F2.8-4. Is it really sharp, even wide open ?
  2. Do you also have AF hunting issue using the latest fw ?
