Fuji on first generation lenses refresh and autofocus performance
5

I am surprised that no-one has mentioned that Fuji in their interview with DPreview officially stated that two of their top priorities is refreshing first generation Fuji X lenses and improving autofocus performance.

On lenses

And because we started the system almost ten years ago, the first generation lenses have slow autofocus, and don’t have weather-resistance. We need to refresh those designs.

and on Autofocus

The speed of the autofocus mechanisms is acceptable, but we recognize that some details are missing in the AF algorithm, in tracking. When you’re tracking a subject and something comes between the camera and subject, sometimes you might lose focus. So we have to improve the algorithm, and we’re working on that.

I am looking forward to progress on both fronts
