There's a lot to like about the Fujifilm X-Pro1 mirrorless camera, but we couldn't help but notice its sluggish autofocus performance in our review. Thankfully, Fujifilm has alleviated the issue somewhat by announcing firmware version 2.0, which it claims will improve performance in "challenging lighting conditions, where light is low or bright." The update will be made available on September 18th.

The update also reduces the camera's minimum focusing distance, has some further interface tweaks for manual focusing, and makes writing to a memory card twice as fast. Fujifilm similarly went back to fix the X100's autofocus performance after release; hopefully the recently-announced X-E1 will work better out of the box.
