Fujifilm X-T5: The Issue with Focus Peaking

I have received a message via the revived anonymous contact form by FujiRumors Boris, pointing me out towards an issue with the focus peaking on the Fujifilm X-T5.

Here is the issue:

When you use manual focus and a manual lens on other Fuji cameras and have some kind of focus help like peaking activated, it will show you the highlighted areas but once you half press the shutter, the focus help goes away and you see the pure image, which is very helpful for composition.

On the X-T5 that sadly doesn’t happen anymore and focus peaking stays on screen all the time and you can’t view your actual image. In some situations that doesn’t make a big difference, but when you for example take a photo in the forest or in busy environments, the entire screen is yellow, or red etc. and you basically have no idea what you are shooting.

And you also can‘t put focus peaking on a function button to quickly turn it off. In other words, manual focusing on the XT-5 became very unpractical for no reason.

I don’t know if that’s like this for all 5th generation Fujifilm cameras (X-H2, X-H2S, X-S20 and X-T5). Please let us know in the comments.

My take?

Well, having focus peaking ON all the time, even when the shutter button is half pressed, could actually make sense for example in macro when an insect for example is slightly moving and you want to make a quick adjustment before fully pressing the button. Or when you shoot handheld macro and you want to have the possibility to make quick micro-adjustment at any time, even with the shutter button half pressed.

However, I can also understand if you want to get the focus assistance out of the way once you half press the button to have a clean view over your composition (for example in landscape photography on a tripod).

The solution is simple: Fujifilm should give us the option to pick whatever solution we prefer.

And just for curiosity, a little survey where you can tell us which solution you prefer.

In regards to Focus Peaking...
