Fringer Firmware Update For EF-FX Pro / EF-FX / EF-FX Pro II


Fringer released updates for its first and second generation AF adapter. You can download the updates here and you can read about the updates and procedures below: (Warning Please make sure you download the correct update)

It’s been a while since last firmware released for both Gen1&2 EF/FX adapters. This time we bring you the V1.20 for Gen2 and V3.0 for Gen1.

V1.20 (EF-FX Pro II)
V3.00 (EF-FX Pro & EF-FX)

  1. BUG fixed: When doing contrast AF under circumstances like low light, some new lens models, e.g. SIGMA50-100/1.8, may be error prone and result in low successful rate.
  2. Fixed PDAF issues for some of the following lens models: Lens didn’t get recognized by the adapter due to different lens firmware version.
  3. AF performance of following lenses have been improved further.
  4. Added following lenses to the tested and optimized lens list:

Tamron SP 35-150/2.8-4 which has newly arrived market looks very promising for adapting. It performs quite well on Fujifilm X mount. As a 4.3x zoom lens, it has inevitable LaCA. Now the new adapter firmware also fixed that by providing correction data to the camera.

Be noted, make sure you download the correct file for the corresponding product. For Gen1, i.e. EF-FX Pro and EF-FX, you need firmware file named EFFX****.BIN. For Gen2, i.e. EF-FX Pro II, you need firmware file named EFX2_****.BIN. Using the wrong file will not damage your adapter. But it will not install.

Please visit our official website to download the new firmware, release notes and user’s manual.

To upgrade your adapter, connect it to a computer through a USB Micro B cable. Copy the corresponding firmware (.BIN file) to the emerged drive named “FRINGER”. Wait for 20 seconds. The adapter will upgrade itself.
