I just got two new Fuji Lenses–Check and see if you can too!

I feel like I just got two new Fuji lenses, but that is what if feels like after Fuji introduces a firmware upgrade.

I discovered today that I had missed two firmware upgrades for my Fuji system. I had done the firmware upgrade in December for my Fujifilm X-E2 to Version 3.00, but in March there were updates for two of my lenses 1) XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R LM OIS and 2) XF55-200mmF3.5-4.8 R LM OIS.

The upgrade is to help improvement of stability for OIS function.

Here is the link to see what firmware updates there are for the Fujifilm X series cameras and lenses.

Here is the process and link to take you to the complete steps below.

1) Prepare the necessities for the firmware update.

  1. 1.A camera and a lens to be updated
  2. 2.A fully charged battery
  3. 3.A formatted memory card
  4. 4.The firmware(to be downloaded from this site.)

2) Firmware version checking procedure

  1. 1.Turn off the camera and put the card in it.
  2. 2.Put the card in the camera.
  3. 3.Turn the camera on pressing “DISP/BACK” button to check the current firmware version.(It is ver.1.00 in the picture below.)
  4. 4.
  5. Turn off the camera
  • *If the version is the latest, the firmware update is not required.

I just want you to know that their was a definite improvement beyond just the OIS for me. I think the lenses were a little more responsive in general.

Have you checked your camera and lenses to see if their are firmware upgrades? I can tell you it is like getting a new camera each time Fuji does an upgrade to me.
