Great to see Fujifilm is still updating the performance of their current line of the X-Series, even though they already have announced the X100S.
… I just updated the firmware of the X-E1 and 35mm lens, and although I haven’t had the time to really test it extensively, but it indeed locks on very well now. In my experience it locks on also faster than before.
I did read on someones blog AF has become slower, but for me it feels the opposite. I think it feels that way, because it locks on more often. This update makes the camera really feel like an improved version!
It’s the first time I updated the firmware and I have to say, Fujifilm has explained the process very well on their website. Just read carefully through it (and watch the movie if it will make you feel more confident). Don’t be afraid to run the update. It is very simple and you will have a more accurate, and more enjoyable camera to use, than before…
Now, all we need is some nice light and a subject to test it on! 😉
Good luck, and happy shooting.
