Fuji June 9 Firmware Updates Successfully Installed On X-E2s, 35mm f/2, 18-55mm & 55-200mm f/3.5.

by Anura Guruge


Yes, as planned I waited until today, June 13, 2016 — 3 full days after the release — to do the update.

No problems. Very smooth. In total took less than 10 minutes for all 4 updates and I, intentionally, took it slow so as to avoid any ‘finger trouble’. I even gave the Fuji battery a quick ‘top up’ charge in between the body update and the lens updates!

Did the body, i.e., X-E2s, with just that update on the card.

Then I formatted the card, topped up the battery, and copied ALL 3 updates to the card at once. As I had read on a Fuji forum that was no problem. Camera effortlessly picked up the right update for each lens that was mounted. That saved quite a few steps and time. Lens updates, with the file size just 388KB, were quick. I think I could have had all 4 update (or more) on the card at the same time BUT I was willing to do the body separately.

Did the 55-200 zoom last. Then couldn’t resist taking some pictures, in my darkened study, at ISO 12,800 using manual focus. I will upload the images laters. It could be my imagination and WISHFUL thinking, BUT they seemed sharper!


Lens updates I succesfully installed.

I am always apprehensive about doing any update.

Will There Be A New Kit Lens For The Fuji X-T2 Or Will The New XF 16-55mm f2.8 Suffice?

by Anura Guruge


The Fuji X-T1 when offered with a lens typically comes with the ubiquitous 18-55mm f2.8-4 or the 18-135mm f3.5-5.6.

The new X-Pro2 is invariably sold without a lens.

So what will be the story with the Fuji X-T2, now expected to be announced June 14, 2016? Possible they could announce a new lens with it. That would be neat.

Most buyers of the X-T2, including I, probably already have lenses that will work with the X-T2.

The new XF 16-55mm f2.8 would, from what I can see, make one heck of a good zoom for this camera.

If you want a prime I would look at the 35mm f1.4 or the 56mm f1.2.


Here I sorted out Fuji’s
current repertoire of lenses to help you.
