Anyone done the X-E1 1.04 / X-Pro1 2.03 FW update?

please let us know what you think. Apparently the lens has to be removed to first update the body. I didn't do this last time round as I may have overlooked this in the written procedure.

As far as the update goes, not being obsessive about my equipment's mechanical workings meant that I didn't notice any difference with the camera's performance, but then I didn't really try it out with that in mind and I always update as a matter of course just to be current. I mostly use manual focus 3rd party lenses with manual or A exposure modes, so I wouldn't notice any change in AF even if it had occurred.

i'm not sure there's any difference. i attempted to use the camera this afternoon/evening to take some indoor candids at a restaurant and was reminded why it's so unsuitable as an only or main camera. unable to focus on reasonably high contrast targets 9 out of 10 times, and when it did, it took many seconds. totally useless. f/4 vs f/1.4 may be a big difference here.
it hadn't occured to me that perhaps the new firmware screwed it up. i'll look into that but i doubt it.

N.B. Each lens MUST be mounted on the camera for the respective firmware upgrade. I upgraded the firmware for the body with the 35mm lens on the camera.
The autofocus with the 18 and 35 is as fast as before, if not faster. My 18-55 zoom is new, so I have no basis for comparison. But autofocus is satisfactory.
No problems are apparent after the upgrade.

I've updated tonight and there's no increase in lens noise or aperture blade chatter as reported elsewhere. I'd say that my 35mm hunts more under difficult conditions in order to ensure proper AF lock. This is perfectly acceptable as an out of focus picture isn't. So far in dim light the keeper rate is very high.
I need to check the backlit subject AF performance in daylight tomorrow.
Ok so now I hope Fuji will give us min shutter speed functionality with AUTO ISO as they did in a later X100 firmware.
And focus peeking would be nice to improve manual focus. Otherwise this little camera grows on me day by day.
