So Fuji deliberately crippled the 100f auto focus?

Slow processor?

AF speed got up to, eh, speed with the X-PRO2 in my book, although it is OK on the X-T1 too with recent FW updates. Ask John Rourke what he thinks, he is director for Adrenal Media, the Official Photography Agency for the FIA WEC (World Endurance Championship), and the ELMS (European Le Mans Series) including the world famous 'Le Mans 24hr' and the Michelin GT Le Mans Cup. He uses Fuji x cameras. Check out his work in instagram

It's most likely because it's using essentially the same lens as the original X100.

I find my X100T to have perfectly acceptable AF in decent light, but it definitely hunts a lot in low light, far more than my X-Pro2 with 35/1.4.

Keep in mind that when I say "low light" I'm talking ISO6400, f2, 1/60s. Using the AF illuminator solves the issue, but I hate using it. Using a bigger focus box also helps, but I usually just switch to MF when the light gets low.

one thing I did notice is the camera is very responsive in terms of menu use and also reviewing photos etc. The joystick is also amazing! It's a really nice camera. Bear in mind when I'm saying the af is an issue it's based on my use of the camera - ymmv

The AF speed has nothing to do with the leaf shutter...

Even though the X-T2 is Fuji's newest flagship body the autofocus still does not seem to be on par with even my Canon 80d.

I'm accepting this single shot speed of the autofocus system as it is sufficient for my needs.

Sounds like these leaf shutter systems have limitations. This will probably draw more attention to Fuji lovers looking at the 100f..... now they will consider the XT 20.

What settings are you using? Single shot to freeze action and have sharp images? Drive mode?

For me the autofocus on the X-T2 is amazing on continuous af with low drive so far. Coming from the 6D it can freeze my toddler with no problem. I have yet to use it on a faster action like sports or birding but it seems extremely capable.

When FW 2 came out for the X-PRO2 I gave my two kids, one 6 and the other 9, a couple of water pistols and told them to run about the back garden. I was well happy with the results even with the 56/1.2 on it. Shooting wide open and then close enough to fill the frame. I haven't missed my 5D3's AF capabilities since then. Also manual focusing is a pleasure to do with Fuji, whether it's zoom, peaking or picture in picture. I have mine set to red high and to zoom in on a touch of the focus ring. I'm using it more and more at events, a proper fully manual camera if I want it to be is a nice thing to have. I always hated trying to manually focus on my Canon. I also don't miss the having to fine tune lenses so they are accurate and not back or front focusing, setting up charts and shooting loads of shots to get a lens zoned in.

You might have more fond memories of your X100T than it deserves honestly... my X100T hunts and fails to lock WAY more often than my X-Pro2, even with the 35/1.4 that people were saying hunts like crazy in low light... the X100T is frustrating as hell in comparison, I would find it very surprising if the X100F wasn't a big improvement given it has the same AF system as my X-Pro2.

I've just sold a few m43 lenses and my x30 with the aim of getting an x100T but am I going to be disappointed by its focussing abilities ? I'm assuming it's quick in good light ( m43 is instant almost ) but is it really really bad in low light ? I rarely use iso6400 so I don't know if I'm worried about nothing ?

I still have my m43 gear but want a camera for travel

I've never had a problem with AF, but I think it's subjective to what is fast or not. Maybe go to a local camera store and try it out?

It works great for me, I was just pointing out that the newer AF system is definitely an improvement.

This. It misses AF every now and then when it's very dark, but usually it's when it's dark enough that I'm not even sure the shot would've turned out how I wanted anyway.

I guess the 16 is the reason no one really has or talks about the 14?

Some of a a BBQ that was a super technical job, I really wanted pics of this and the Fuji delivered.
