New Fuji firmware available for X-Pro1, X-E1, X100s, and lenses

A new firmware version for the Fuji X-series cameras and lenses is available today.  You can download it directly from Fujifilm here: FIRMWARE UPDATE. 

Pressing and holding the command dial (red arrow) activates the focus peaking. A quick press activates the magnification mode, which can then be changed from 3x to 10x by turning the dial
The new firmware offers an increase in autofocus speed with most of the Fuji lenses. Autofocus has also been improved in low contrast scenes and scenes with horizontal stripes.

The update also introduces focus peaking on the X-Pro1 and X-E1 cameras when using manual focus. A new dual image magnification feature  is incorporated into the command dial and aids manual focus by showing either 3x or 10x magnification of the image area.

An upgrade of the lens firmware on the following lenses is also necessary for a complete to take full advantage of the new camera software:

- 14mm
- 18mm
- 18-55mm
- 35mm
- 60mm Macro

You need to match the firmware version of camera and lens to take advantage of the full upgrade package. For an X-Pro1 for instance, that would mean upgrading all elements to Version 3.0.
