The truth about the „Fastest“

„The AF is faster“. That is the impression that many users are left with, when they test the new X-Pro2 that are now being displayed in many showrooms and in stores. It is not hard to imagine that many of those that are eager to test the X-Pro2 are the X-Pro1 users. X-Pro2 has seen a major improvement in AF performance compared to the X-Pro1. So the above impression is in fact „true“. But if you are comparing the speed with the X-T1, X-E2 or X-T10 (cameras with phase detection AF), then your impression is „wrong in terms of numbers, but true feeling-wise.“ „The fastest AF speed“of the X-Pro2, measurement based on the CIPA guideline, is same as other cameras with the phase detection AF. X-Pro2 is not breaking the record of the AF fastest speed of the X Series. „The fastest AF speed“ is a bit tricky one. This measurement is conducted under a particular environment specified by the guideline. So the shooting scene inevitably gets detached from the real shooting environment. The score of the AF speed isn’t necessarily what the users experience in reality. Therefore we say it is „wrong in terms of numbers, but true feeling-wise“……..
