Fujifilm have released a firmware update for the X100S.

The only fix is listed as follows

1.The phenomenon is fixed that the brightness of the OVF bright frame doesn’t change according to a surrounding brightness in case of ISO 1600 and higher.

Sadly it doesn’t include anything about AF being improved at low light that has been reported (by myself alongside others now) in low light.

Get the update here.  Installation is easy as always – copy it to an SD card and then press and hold the Back/Menu button whilst turning the camera on and following the instructions.

      Interesting. It doesn’t say speed, just accuracy though. Odd that it would be missing from the UK/US version.

    Yes, it is strange. Some users on fujix-forum.com claim the AF is noticably more accurate after upgrading to 1.02.

    Maybe it’s just ‘Safari feels snappier now’-effect or maybe Fuji actually improved it.

    Have you noticed a difference?

      I haven’t really been back to test it properly yet (my X100S review is long overdue as I’ve been busy!) and I haven’t got the X100 to compare it against any more.

      My guess is that unless Fujifilm mention focus speed specifically (they always have in the past) then nothing has changed in that regard.

    Don’t worry. DPreview still haven’t made their review, seems like every other major photosite has.

    Look forward to reading yours 🙂

      Thanks. I’ve written the first few hundred words. Not doing a traditional review – I think they have been done do death by now!
