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.

For the record here are images of each update.
I am always apprehensive about doing any update.
