Fujifilm has announced new firmware for its X-Pro2 mirrorless camera which, most notably, updates the autofocus algorithm to be in-line with the just-announced X-T2. The company promises better AF speed and accuracy, but notes that the use case-based system on the X-T2 will not be available on the X-Pro2.
The firmware update also improves parallax correction when using the OVF and adds support for the new EF-X500 external flash.
X-Pro2 owners will be able to get their hands on the new firmware this October.
Along with the new firmware, Fuji has also refreshed its X-mount lens roadmap (shown below), adding three new XF lenses: 23mm F2 R WR, 50mm F2 R WR and 80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro. The 23mm will be shipping this year, while the other two will arrive in 2017.
One lens that was removed is the 120mm F2.8 R Macro, which has been replaced with the aforementioned 80mm Macro. Fuji states that this is ‘to meet the market demand for compact and lightweight lenses.’
