    Very nice.

    Only help I can give is try different combo's of auto focus settings until you find one that can lock focus and continue to focus on quickly moving objects.
    After that it's just practice.

    From the Michael the Maven guy that tested the XT-2 against the Nikon D500 and his conclusion once you get the AF setup the best for birds in flight which ever that is supposedly had a higher keeper rate then the D500 side to side but head on Nikon D500 held the edge + buffer. The Fuji system is pretty impressive even if none of this is true just holding one looking over placement of dials and build quality is amazing. I don't have the XT-2 but have XT-10 and very impressed with it. I don't use as often as I should but still every time I take it out of the bag I think the same thing that I love it.

    You aren't afraid to try anything when it comes to photography, are you? I applaud your diversity and yearning for knowledge.
