Fujifilm X-T2 Recap
According to Fujifilm, the X-T2 is not faster than the X-Pro 2. 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.
Here are the full size comparison between the new Fuji X-T2 vs X-T1 via Camerasize.
