I've recently taken the plunge and traded in an X-T1 for an X-T2. One thing I've noticed is that there isn't the depth of field with RAWs using at least two of my lenses (16-55mm and 50-140mm) that I'd become accustomed to with the X-T1. I very often use f8. I could rely on a decent depth of field. But not so using the X-T2 with RAWs appearing to me to be a bit lacking in DoF. I think I see a general softness in RAWs that also wasn't there with the X-T1. JPEGs, however, are brilliant.
Could this be the larger sensor? Or could I be imagining things?
Sorry, ***SOLD*** (I can't see how to close this Classified!)

I've previously owned a X-Pro 1 and x100, but ultimately ditched them for film, and eventually Leica.
I've really enjoyed using zone focusing and taking autofocus out of the equation.
I'm currently saving my pennies for a Leica 21 Super-Elmar, but geeeeeeeezzzz it's expensive.
With prices on the used market, I'm being tempted by an x-series camera 14 f2.8 and 23 f2.
in my previous experience, zone focusing on an X had two big drawbacks:
the INCREDIBLY conservative DoF scale
shutter lag in manual mode, it appeared that the aperture would stop down and the camera would meter after the release was pressed and before the shutter would fire.
Have these issues been addressed through firmware updates or the new cameras?
Anyone out there with both Leicas and X Series that can comment on zone focusing with both?
