Ever since it entered the mirrorless interchangeable lens camera market with the X Series in 2012, Fujifilm has cultivated a reputation for consistently updating and improving on its current products in ways that have been uncommon in the camera Industry. On Thursday, Fujifilm reaffirmed that commitment to constant improvement by announcing firmware updates for 19 X Series cameras and lenses.

Among the cameras getting updates is its latest flagship offering, the X-Pro 2. Issues specifically addressed include an improvement in manual focus accuracy and resolution of an issue that in some situations caused the camera to need to be turned off and then back on to wake it up from a sleep state.

The cameras updated with the manual focus accuracy improvement are:

  • X-Pro1
  • X-T1
  • X-T10
  • X-E2S
  • X-E2
  • X-E1
