Auto Focus speed and focus accuracy is something many Fujifilm
fanboy have to live with; when using the sexy X-Series system. Last
year when X-T1 had a firmware update; the AF have indeed improved
significantly. I dare say it has reach the border of DLSR territory.
Today I have another update to share. Last weekend my wife and I
brought my daughter to Disney on Ice at the Singapore indoor stadium.
Oh man! I have never seen so many little Elsa in my life! I packed X-Pro2
with 2 lenses. XF16mm F1.4 and XF90mm F2 WR. I thought this will be
a great opportunity to test the AF of X-Pro2 in an indoor setting.
Many have asked how is the balance of X-Pro2 mounted with XF90mm.
After today; I can say its perfect! Both weighting almost the same and a
total weight of less then 1KG. My settings is set to Continuous AF with 9 point
Zone AF mode. Holding this set-up is a breeze; comfortable and delight to
shoot with. The plus point is the new mini joy-stick to help change the
position of Zone AF swiftly.
Panning and “chasing” the disney character is a walk in the park with X-Pro2’s
AF. I dare say the hit rate is anything from 70%-85%! Here are some pictures;
all taken in Jpeg and simple adjustment in Capture One. Don’t you just love the
IQ coming out of this set-up? All zoom picture are at 100%.
Finally I hope this set of photos will give all X-Pro2 owners more confident with
your amazing camera. And for those sitting on the fence; its time to come over
to the greener pasture. Its all real!
