That Fuji was forced to release a Firmware Update within 22 days of the much vaunted X-Pro2’s General Availability has to indicate that the Menu Setting Reset problem was real. The explanation (above) that comes with the 1.0 update confirms that.

This is disturbing and I speak of one who has been involved with software for 48 years! How could X-Pro2 testers, QA folks and beta-testers (in the field) NOT have seen this. Cameras would have to have been turned off — if nothing else to replace batteries. So people MUST have experienced this problem before the camera started to ship.

Would appear that Fuji OPTED to ship initial units KNOWING that there was this RESET problem. Would not be the first company to have knowingly shipped faulty products. But worrying. What can we expect with the Fuji X-T2 that is supposed to be available around August 2016.

So today was the day that Fuji made available the 1st Firmware Update to the X-Pro2 — released just 3 weeks ago.

And I keep on seeing these Forum posts about obscure issues. Yes, I fully understand and appreciate that if you have enough monkeys typing you will eventually get all of Wikipedia written BUT I also believe that there has to be even a small fire if there are so many reports of credible smoke. A few people have claimed that the X-Pro2 freezes (and we are NOT talking about using it in cold weather). That scares me.

To be fair I CANNOT, for the world of me, see the AF Grid Points in the purported image. Others say they can and even have explanations. That scares me.

The whole Fuji X-Pro2 roll out has made me nervous since I WANT to buy the X-T2 as soon as it becomes available. Yes, some of the X-Pro2 fixes will already, I hope, be in the X-T2 Firmware BUT Fuji’s credibility is a bit shot.
