Frustrated and bored with Fuji X

I was so excited when the X-T1 came out. We bought two, and finally made the long-postponed transition from decades of shooting film to a serious digital camera. The first year or so were great. Then once we got the 50-140 we began to realize (though it took some time to be sure what the problem was) that the camera just couldn't focus it consistently enough, which came to feel like a real ripoff considering the cost of that lens. Firmware updates didn't help, and are obviously about finished now.  And here we are in 2018 and they still haven't even announced the next lens we'd want, a prime of around 200-250mm, f/4. Not that we'd expect the camera to be able to focus it anyway. Instead we see all these little micro-4/3 like lenses coming out that rely on software correction.

The romance is over. Fuji eating Canon's lunch? I don't think so. More like setting the table.
