    I went with a friend to one of the Park & View sites on Friday and the weather was kind if not a little changeable, the aircraft were right overhead so a good location for photos.

    Used the X-T2+100-400 and even though I am happy with the results, I am becoming frustated with the AFC and have decided to go back to Nikon for my sport shooting and keep a couple of my Fuji's for street / walkabout work.

    These are some of my images from the day.

    These look great. What exactly were you finding was the problem with AF-C? I used the same combo yesterday and it was pretty stunned at how well it kept up, I don't think I missed anything due to the AF system not keeping up.

    I used Single Point, AF-C. As is often the case (with any system) I didn't find the clever tracking options to add anything apart from frustration.

    Thanks ukaskew, for a while now I have been feeling frustrated (castle Combe motorcycle racing and then RIAT as well as other sporting event), the cameras are superb for documentary / street but compared to my former Nikons I have found the Fuji's lacking so alas I am moving back to Nikon for my sport / wildlife work yet keeping the 100s and X70 for street and landscape work.

    Superb series of photos on Flikr and a real variety of equipment.
