Accentuate your subject. For photographers, focusing is an important job. Although AF now reacts faster than the human eye, the appeal and level of trust in MF will never disappear. Manually operating the focus ring to pick out a specific element in the frame is often crucial. Speed isn't always everything.
The new Focus Lever on the back of the camera can be moved like a joystick in eight directions to instantly move the focus area. Now, rapid focus area changes can be made, even when composing an image. Not only is this available to move the AF point during AF mode, but it can also be used during MF mode to quickly move the enlarged display area when using MF assist.
The FUJIFILM X-Pro2 comes equipped with different types of MF assist including Digital Split Image, which is reminiscent of old rangefinders, and Focus Peaking where color is used to show the parts of the image that are in focus.
Color or monochrome can now be selected for Digital Split Image MF assist.
The number of selectable focusing points has been expanded from 49 on previous models to 77. Approximately 40% of the imaging area is now covered by fast, precise phase detection AF pixels, which means focusing speeds when photographing moving subjects have improved dramatically.
