Fringer EF/FX Smart Adapters Firmware 2.4 Optimized for Fujifilm X-T3 Released

Fringer has just released version 2.4 or their EF/FX smart adapters, optimized for Fujifilm X-T3.

Full Release Notes

Fujifilm X-T3 got much improved AF performance. I found it’s so far the best X camera that can use adapted EF mount lenses. Now all its full sensor covered PDAF points are supported. And as the low light AF capability has been improved to -3EV, AF successful rate got greatly improved. Meanwhile, WIDE/TRACKING mode and FACE/EYE focus are all works much better. Please watch this demo video.

The improvements of V2.40 firmware includes

  1. For Fujifilm X-T3 (and all coming cameras with X-Trans IV CMOS), we have optimized PDAF performance of all the lenses (on the tested and optimized lens list). Now you can leverage its full sensor coverage PDAF focus points and get improved AF performance.
  2. Added following lenses to the tested and optimized lens list:
    1. Tamron SP 70-200/2.8 Di VC USD G2

Fujifilm X-T3: Are 2/3 Stops Better Low ISO Dynamic Range Compared to X-T2 Realistic?

Fujifilm X-T3

A few days ago, DPReview published their Fujifilm X-T3 studio lab test shots, and as to expect, the FR-community had lots to discuss.

Keep in mind that DPReview used a non final BETA version of Adobe with X-T3 support. DPReview says the will re-check the ACR performance before making any final conclusions.

In the comments to the lab test article, some FR-reader observed certain improvements on the Fujifilm X-T3, that at the end could give us 2/3 stop better dynamic range over the X-T3. I will share their feedback below, as well as some of my observations.
