Fujifilm Believes Their Mirrorless Cameras Will Eventually Match DSLR Autofocus

There is an ongoing debate in the photography world as to whether or not mirrorless cameras have the potential to replace DSLRs. There are some well-known professionals who have made the switch very publicly, but at the same time there are some technical shortcomings in mirrorless cameras that are hard to ignore.

An example would in autofocus speeds where there are plenty of DSLRs that have no problems running circles around mirrorless systems. However Fujifilm thinks that this gap could soon be closed based on an interview with Focus Numerique (via Mirrorless Rumors) where according to the Fujifilm managers that were interviewed, they think that the company's mirrorless cameras have the potential to catchup to DSLR autofocus performance.

Canon's Powershot G1 X Mark Iii Is A 24mp Aps-c Compact With Dslr-like Autofocus

Canon's PowerShot G1 X Mark III is a 24MP APS-C compact with DSLR-like autofocus

Canon has introduced the PowerShot G1 X Mark III - the third and latest model in its premium G1 X-series. The G1 X Mark III borrows its 24MP APS-C sensor, Dual Pixel AF system and DIGIC 7 processor from Canon's ILCs, such as the EOS 77D and EOS M5, but adds a fixed 24-72mm equivalent F2.8-5.6 zoom and combines them into a relatively compact body weighing just 400g/14oz. In other words, you're essentially getting a fixed-lens version of the EOS M5 that fits in the palm of your hand.

We're already familiar with the sensor and the Dual Pixel AF system and as such, we're hoping for good results from both. The lens has nine elements, three of which are double-sided aspherical, a built-in three-stop neutral density filter and image stabilization with up to four stops of shake reduction.

The report also claims that the A7III will be sporting a brand new 24MP sensor and it will also come with a new autofocus system, both of which are apparently based on the Sony A9 which was announced earlier this year.
