Is there überhaupt a fuji camera that has reliable auto focus?

hi all,

Third fuji camera in 4 months time, with everything except impeccable autofocus for stills/single AFs.

About 4 months ago I posted a thread about autofocus issues of my (then) new camera: XT20 with 18-55. It had about 40% blurry images. I took it to the shop, made my case and it was exchanged with a (then) new X-E3. High hopes after the first test shots, with good results. 4 months later I finally send the X-E3 back for repairs. 15 out of 100 blurred photo's.  The XE3 was new kit with new 18-55. Also same issue with 27mm prime, so its body related and not lens.

I shouldn't have waited that long, but somewhere I thought it was user error, But to me it's just not possible. So now I have to wait 4-6 weeks for the repairs, but I can't wait that long without a camera, so I bought a new XT2 for a reasonable price. salesman told me QA was more reliable on more expensive models... (???) Anyway, I did my proper testing and 4 out of 60 shots are blurred.

I post three here, behind dropbox, so I hope you can download the RAF files.

In the meanwhile I've been reading here on dpreview and other sites that there are known issues with autofocus and XT2. Diagonal reading all those threads doesn't bring me a solution and as for settings, I took the advice and test already. and most of all it does not give me the idea it's a user error. Is there a solution in the end? I guess not, as the firmware on the lenses and body are the most recent version.

Thanks to all,

Kind regards
