Simply updating the firmware won’t make full use of X-T1’s potential. If you want the fastest performance, set the “HIGH PERFORMANCE” option to ON from the menu below:
SETUP 2 > POWER MANAGEMENT > HIGH PERFORMANCE
The AF speed will be faster by setting the option.
It will depend on the lens used and the shooting environment, but it will be faster by approx. 0.04 sec.
This menu is not limited to X-T1. Other models like X-T10 and X-E2 also have the menu as well.
The sacrifice to make the AF speed faster is the greater battery consumption, but it is a good option to remember when you are at the critical moment to take the best shot.
If you carry a spare battery with you, then maybe it is not a bad idea to set the menu on at all times.
