    Fuji has released new firmware for the X-T2 and X-Pro 2 + the 10-24 and 18-55 zooms available from your local Fujifilm website!

    I really hope it resolves the poor autofocus accuracy on those two lenses. I have never seen a more unreliable autofocus lens than the 10-24 - it's even worse than shooting with a DSLR. You look at the focus DOF indicator and it shows you a different distance almost every time you try to focus on the same subject. The 18-55 is somehow similar at smaller apertures, and I cannot figure out why Fuji has done nothing to make them more reliable. Always wondered if, to achieve a faster focussing speed, they have sacrificed accuracy by loosening up the "tolerances" for acquired focus.
    So many times I just give up on the AF and go full manual - however the peaking *SUCKS* on my X-T2. I mean, even my S8+ has better focus peaking. Even my 3 years old Olympus E-M1 blows my X-T2 out of the water when it comes to peaking and focus accuracy. And I am even going to waste words on the split image thingy... it would only be curses anyway.
    We get a class leading EVF, then they are not capable of using it properly for improving manual focus accuracy. It is just mind boggling.

    Now, Fuji, you need to give the Pro2 the ability to control ISO with one of the thumb wheels like the T2 and x100f.

    All firmware updated - and the AF accuracy on the 10-24 still sucks. Great.

    Bummer. Glad you posted that, however, as I've rented a 10-24 for the next week and will know better how to approach my compositions.

    Having the X-T20 and this lens for a few months now I thought the out-of-focus images was user error..
    Side-stepping from m4/3 the Fuji adventure has been a little disappointing so far. I'll give it a year and then see what I'll decide.
