Firmware: 1.01 for X-E1 and 2.01 for X-PRO1

Here is the next update for Fuji lenses and the X-PRO1:

Firmware 1.01 for X-E1 (click here): It will add the compatibility with Fujinon XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R, improve the auto focus accuracy with XF60mm lens, and prevent under exposure when using the M-Mount Adapter .

Firmware 2.01 for X-PRO1 (click here) : Get full performance with the Fujinon XF18-55F2.8-4 lens. The size of the bright frame on OVF can be magnified in relation to zooming motion of Fujinon XF18-55mm lens. When using the focus checking function with “3-time” magnification in manual focus mode, you could find a few dots (black or color) only in live view image on EVF/LCD. Improve auto accuracy focus of XF60mm lens and prevent under exposure when using the M-Mount Adapter.

keep it up, Fuji!

    The menu also scrolls better, pressing up on Shooting Menu 1 takes you to Set-up menu 3 so you get to Format quicker. Scrolling now seems completely different to what I thought it did or did I miss this in the update to 2.0?

      Hm…mine doesn’t…
      Up on Shooting Menu 1 takes me to Shooting Menu 5 :/

      • Andy

        press left then up and you get to set-up 3. They almost got it right but at least it’s faster than before when it was left & down lots!

    No noticeable difference with the 60 macro, still mostly unusable. I don’t have the zoom, so cannot comment on that, but no other improvements noted.

    Hey, I don’t know if anybody noticed that after updating my firmware for both th 35mm and the body, all my custums settings where still intact. I didn’t have tu reconfigure the camera after the upgrade. Thanks Fuji for listening and all the good work!

    • Andy

      Yep, same for me. Some small useful upgrades this time.

        You’re right! I’m so used to upgrades that don’t actually do anything, as in this case with the 60mm lens, that I didn’t notice I didn’t have to reset the settings! Finally… it’s taken them several years to get that one fixed, so maybe by 2016 we may see some other useful upgrades. :)

  • Chad

    That is good news. Was going to skip this update just because of the hassle of resetting configuration.

    • GeorgeC

      I read somewhere that it’s a good idea to download each firmware update because Fuji tend to include tweaks not necessarily mentioned in the update.

      • Chad

        I ran the update and am seeing an undocumented improvement over v2.0.

        The power-on time from off and from sleep is very fast. I used to get a long delay when powering back up from sleep but now it is less than 1 second.

  • Martin

    I hope Fuji keeps on releasing bugfixes and improvements continuously. Focus peaking would be very nice to see in a future release.

    I notice less aperture chatter, only makes noise when button pressed. This is great!

    After the 2.1 firmware update I noticed that the exposure indicator has no “indicator” needle – it only has the numbers scale on the far left of the OVF. I am using the fuji 35mm lens. Is anyone seeing this glitch?
