Additionally there’s a new firmware coming for the X-Pro2


Fujifilm Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) has announced that it will release firmware update Ver. 2.0. for the FUJIFILM X-Pro2 rangefinder-style mirrorless digital camera in October 2016. With the firmware update, the FUJIFILM X-Pro2 and the new FUJIFILM X-T2 will stand side-by-side as “double flagship” X Series cameras.

Detail of the update includes

  1. 1.The new autofocus algorithm* that is implemented on the new FUJIFILM X-T2 to produce faster and more accurate autofocus will also be implemented on the FUJIFILM X-Pro2.
    • *Excludes the new AF-C Custom Settings functions.
  1. 2.Compatibility with the new hot-shoe mount flash EF-X500. The camera will now be enabled with high-speed flash sync and multi-flash lighting.
  2. 3.AUTO POWER OFF will now have 15 sec, 30 sec, and 1 min. options, allowing more customizable power management.
  3. 4.The parallax correction function will be improved to provide a more accurate and easier-to-use Optical Viewfinder.
  • *The detail of the firmware is subject to change.

Cool,  but note it says “Excludes the new AF-C Custom Settings functions.”.  So that means we’re not getting those on the xpro2 anytime soon.
