Fujifilm X-T30 - firmware with improved AF

Do you think the Fujifilm X-T30 will receive a new firmware update with improved AF (like the X-T3)?

I cant see it happening. Be nice if they did though.

I would be thinking they will be wanting people to move to the newer models (sx10/Xe4/possible xt40) to get the improved AF.

As an XT4 owner, I'd love some of this improved AF you speak of!

I wouldn't say it's bad, it's just not that good.

My understanding was that Fuji planned to keep the T3 and T30 in lockstep with regards to AF firmware but I must have just misinterpreted that.

I'm pretty happy with the T30's performance so whilst it's a little disappointing if it's received its last update, it's understandable for a 2 year old camera.

The xt3 has such an awesome AF, how did the XT4 drop the ball?

I think they might see it as undermining the X-S10 sales by doing so, especially as they are selling X-S10's at a premium. My honest evaluation of the X-T3 vs the X-S10 was that even with the latest firmware it didn't seem as sure footed as the X-S10. I didn't have the X-T4 at that time to test against, but the X-S10 certainly seemed a much better unit, af, response etc. So the X-T30 is falling a long way behind from what the X-T4/X-S10 can offer and presumably the X-E4 which is what Fuji would probably prefer to protect their margins, they want to sell units!

I had hope until the announcement of the X-E4. Obviously, we don't know exactly what the X-E4 will offer, but it doesn't look like much over the X-T30, so I'm sure Fuji won't want to put the X-T30 on par with the X-E4 and risk lower sales volumes.

I think eventually the X-T30 will get a firmware update, but I don't think it will be for a long time. Perhaps a year. They'll likely bundle it with the firmware updates needed for the newer lenses.

Fujifilm X-T30 is a half year younger model than the X-T3.
