The 2015 edition of The Color Run was the perfect place for me to test the new Fuji X-T1 firmware v4.0 as well has the superb weather sealed XF 16-55 f/2.8 R LM WR lens.
For those who have never been to a Color Run, it’s basically a lot of people running in a cloud of coloured dust… A camera’s nightmare. I was really looking forward to try the zone focusing system in continuous mode.
The results are amazing. This is not the absolute best photography images but you can clearly see that shot after shot the focusing system worked perfectly. For this event, I was set on a 3x3 zone. I also tried it in CL mode and CH mode. In CL mode everything was good but in CH mode I had a few miss focus. To be honest, this is totally normal. Nikon camera’s produce the same results in high FPS combined with continuous focus.
Again, I’m amazed at what Fuji is releasing to the market. I was a long time lover of my Nikkor 24-70mm and I was truly missing that lens when I switched to mirrorless. For me, this focal length is very important when shooting, events or travel photography. Now, I can say that I'm a very happy man!!
