IT’S KAIZEN TIME

A trusted source just contacted me, and told me that not only the X-Pro2, but also the X-Pro1 and many Fujinon lenses will get a Firmware update soon. Here is what the source told us:

X-Pro2 Firmware

As already leaked here, the X-Pro2 FW 2.00 will bring a new and improved autofocus algorithm (faster and more accurate AF, more AF-points and AF tracking improvements), support for EF-X500 flash, Auto Power feature changes, and Corrected AF frame function improvement.

But the same leaked press release, said that the improvements will actually be 20. So what else will come? Well, Fuji will improve Eye Detection, additional flash settings can be located on the Q menu. Regarding the tracking, you will be able to use the electronic shutter in AF-C. There will improvements in the OVF and some bugs will be fixed, too.

It sounds overall like a huge Firmware update that will bring some big and many small improvements… well done, Fuji… you’ll make lots of X-Pro2 owners very happy soon :)

X-Pro1 Firmware

Just like the X-Pro2, also the X-Pro1 will get the Corrected AF frame function improvement. I haven’t heard of other improvements.

Fujinon Lenses Firmware

With the new Firmware, the Chromatic Aberration on the XF16-55mmF2.8 will be better controlled. Many Fujinon lenses will also get better parallax correction.

FINAL NOTE

It’s rare, but it can happen (and it already happened) that a new firmware can contain minor bugs. In the past Fujifilm usually was very fast to fix them. But I’d recommend not to update, if you need the X-Pro2 for an important job/event. Use the current firmware and wait a few days after the firmware release. Fujifilm will be monitoring the situation after the FW release very closely, also by reading the feedback from X-shooters here on Fujirumors.

It might also a good thing to read again Rico’s article “Tips for updating your Firmware
