Generalised AF-C ?
1

Since my early days in photography, unless I know that I'll shoot action in burst mode, I shoot in AF-S most of the time. It sometimes fails because of subject movements, as it typically happens in portraiture with small DOF. But overall, it's OK and I'm used to do that way since a long time.

So I did never care that much about AF-C, which in my experience always used to produce more anoyances than the AF-S issue above. However, I miss a tilt screen on my XE3 and unlike the XT20, the new XT30 gains a joystick. So I have to say that I'm tempted and I've watched several XT30 videos. Many of them actually focus on AF-C and tracking. And I have to say that I'm impressed (by Sony as well, it's not only a Fuji thing).

Do you think that tech has reached a point where AF-C is now so fast and reliable that even for people like me (who long term used to primarilly use AF-S), using AF-C by default becomes an option, with MF as the most used alternative, and AF-S becoming only used for very specific tasks ?
