Does The Fujifilm X-T2 Focus Faster Than The X-Pro 2


The Fujifilm X-T2 is not faster than the X-Pro 2, according to Fujifilm, both cameras focus at 0.06 seconds when using phase detection af pixels, but the X-T2 uses phase detection 2/3 of the time and the X-Pro 2 1/3 of the time. This will change when Fujifilm releases firmware 2.00 for the X-Pro 2, which will bring parity to the cameras. The X-Processor Pro is what makes parity possible because it can be reprogramed during a firmware update. Maybe the reprogrammable X-Processor Pro will be what differentiates Fujifilm Professional cameras from lesser Fujifilm cameras like the Fujifilm X-E 3 in the future.

    What the heck do you suppose they mean by “2/3 of the time” and “1/3 of the time”?

    • Right now the X-Pro 2 falls back on contrast detect autofocus more. So it could seem slower, but it’s not.

    Differentiating on what is already a low volume processor would be stupid.
    It would increase the per unit cost and make developing software for the cameras a bigger task.
    If they keep the processor the same on the entire line they can just reuse most of the code.

    Differentiating will be done with the evf, screen, build quality and weather sealing and stuff like that.
