Actually I've had it for a couple of years, nearly all of which its spent in one of my camera bags because the AF is garbage. You can defend Fuji all you like, a top of the range camera which can't reliably hit focus on a high contrast, static target, in excellent light should never have hit the shelves. And it's actually known for its slow AF, I bought it for static objects, of which it still can't hit them reliably.
Don't blame me for Fuji's shortcomings. How can you "learn a cameras shortcomings" if it's shortcomings are sometimes it will hit target and sometimes it won't ? How do you learn to tell the difference in that ?
If you have something to offer that points out I'm doing something wrong I'm all ears. Blaming "operator error" doesn't help me or anyone else reading this thread.
