This is NOT good news for Fuji X-T2 fans.

Phase Detection‘ is what was supposed to make the Fuji autofocus better.

DSLRs, like the Nikon D500, use ‘Phase Detection’ 100% of the time when the mirror is down (i.e., viewfinder-mode).

If the X-T2 is using ‘contrast detection’ 66% of the time we are unlikely to see that bigger an improvement in AF.

I am SO GLAD I decided against getting a X-T2 and yesterday embarked on my new life with Nikon by getting a P900 to begin with (fully aware that the P900 is NOT a DSLR and as such does not have ‘Phase Detect’) while I mentally prepare myself to buy a Nikon D500.
