Basically I'm undecided as to how well it works. The increased contrast on its own is an aid to seeing when an image 'snaps' into focus, but as to whether its quicker and more accurate, the juries out on that one.
There is also supposed to be an AF speed improvement and while my 18-55mm zoom seems to focus faster and slightly more reliably in low light, I'm not sure that its as dramatic as Fuji would have us believe.
So initial impressions are positive but with some reservations. I need to work with it more to see if this is a significant update or one that is more like a 'work in progress' rather than a dramatic improvement.
