05 Sep Fujifilm X-T2 & 18-55 z-axis tracking | Ohm Image

In no way am I affiliated with, or a fan of, Fujifilm’s X series. At one time I thought I was. After three years in the X camp, I sold everything X I had: X-T1, X-Pro 1, X100s, and my lenses. I’m vocal about Fujifilm’s design boners, including their penchant to Peter Keating anachronistic design for the sake of anachronism. But credit belongs where it is due. And the X-T2, despite what its anachronism, tracks far better than the X-T1 with the same lens, at the same aperture, ISO, and under the same conditions. And, whilst tracking, its EVF barely blacks out at all. It also tracks more accurately than the Leica SL with the 24-90 Elmarit, a feat of which the X-T1 isn’t capable. Mea culpa: In 2013, I quit my job at an event studio in Chiba, Japan, to develop my macro still life studio. As such, I seldom shoot autofocus. When I do, I’m in dark Tokyo embassies, or at darker audiophile panels, whose subjects need AF about as much as fish needs a bicycle. Typically, my cameras (Sinar arTec, Linhof M679cs, Rollei X-ACT 2) sit atop camera stands, behind bellows, large format lenses, and rickety press shutters………
