The Run Preston 10k event was the first opportunity I have had to put the autofocus capabilities of the Fuji X-T2 to the test and it passed with flying colours.
There has been a lot said about the improvements made and the ability to configure the autofocus when in continuous shooting mode. Photographing runners was never going to be the most demanding of tasks for this camera but the light levels were pretty low at times and that always makes things a little tricky.
I was using the camera coupled with battery grip in boost mode and 50-140mm lens with the custom autofocus set on default number one position.
I was pleasantly surprised by the speed and accuracy of the focus even when ISO levels were as high as 4000 at times. There’s also a quality about the jpegs which I believe is a step up from the X-T1.
The hit rate achieved here was a new Personal Best. Click on any photo to enter slideshow.
