Fujifilm Problematic Firmware Update


Press Release:
The FUJIFILM X-series product range has received excellent reviews from a wide range of users since launch. The excellent build, retro design, intuitive controls and outstanding image quality combine to form a package which has delighted professional and enthusiast photographers across the world.

Unfortunately we have discovered that the latest firmware of XF90mmF2 R LM WR (Ver.1.01) and XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR (Ver1.10) launched on 9 June 2016 has a potential issue which may result in a failure if the upgrade is conducted with a camera whose firmware is the previous version. In this case, the LCD on the camera blinks on & off after the camera is turned on and then a “Lens Error” message is indicated. If this phenomenon doesn’t occur after the firmware upgrade, these lenses can be used normally.

Due to the above, the download service of the firmware of XF90mmF2 R LM WR and XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR is temporarily suspended.
We have addressed the potential issue and will release an improved firmware for both the XF90mmF2 R LM WR and XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR. This latest version will be released on our Global site on 21 July 2016.
