With regards to any AF improvement, obviously a new sensor and processor will help, but the hardware will only get you so far, you still need to build a powerful focus algorithm into your firmware to process the data received at lightning speed, to be effective.

It's evident that Sony and Canon have invested heavily in this regard, with their ability to identify and lock onto subjects rapidly and "stickily" being highly lauded. Sony obviously has resources from other divisions which have likely helped the development of their AF, and Canon have been working on DPAF for some years and obviously stepped it up with the R5/6.

Fujifilm really punch above their weight on almost every other regard, and I really hope they've put some clever magic into this which will finally push their AF performance right up there. At least to the point where it's no longer remarked on as "good, not great".

I'm with you. I'm always disappointed by seemingly simple situations where someone will be walking, not even running towards me, and I'll be in zone AF-C, and I'll sometimes have less than a 50% keeper rate. Unacceptable in my book.
