Fringer EF-FX Pro II Coming before May 11

Fringer EF-FX Pro II

Fringer just released the Fringer EF-FX Pro II autofocus smart adapter for pre-order.

Main improvements of the 2nd generation of EF-FX Pro include

  • Redesigned aperture ring for more convenient operation
  • New MCU (more powerful, more resources for firmware update)
  • Better light absorbing design

The price is $299 + $25 (worldwide expedited shipping included. tax/duty not included). Fringer will begin to ship it before May 11.

The functions and performance of gen1 and gen2 are the same.

So far only the Fringer EF-FX Pro II is released. The non-Pro version is still available only in its first generation. In future, the functional firmware update for gen1 and gen2 will be released at the same time as long as the resources of gen1 are enough to support that.

The Fringer EF-FX Pro II is open for pre-order now at Fringer store.

Customer Service Compared: Fujifilm keeps up with Canon, Sony is Worst – How Good is the Fuji Service in Your Country? (POLL)

Tony Northrup investigated in a poll, which camera service is the best. The results:

  1. Olympus: 90.5% satisfaction
  2. Canon: 84.6% satisfaction
  3. Fujifilm: 84.6% satisfaction
  4. Nikon: 80.5% satisfaction
  5. Sony: 70.6% satisfaction

Speaking of Fujifilm service…

I am curious to know how satisfied you are with the service in your country.

According to feedback I got so far, I have the impression that the service in UK is probably the best in the Fujifilm world. But I also hear stories that are pretty frustrating coming from other countries.

In order to let Fujifilm know, I decided to launch a poll, which might help them to see, where there is still room for improvement.

Of course I can’t include all countries, so I will select the top 10 countries amongst FujiRumors readers.

NOTE: I have just been informed that Fuji professional service (FPS) has been launched also in Australia. Register here
