Rumors have been floating around for months and we finally are getting official word from Fuji on its new generation of X-Series cameras and a highly-anticipated lens. The new products announced today include:
The Fuji X-Pro2, X-E2S and X70 cameras are expected to be officially announced later this week. However, it looks like Fujifilm in France posted the YouTube sizzle videos for the cameras publicly a little too soon.

Fuji recently released firmware version 4.20 for the Fuji X-T1 and added several new features and enhancements. According to a new notice from Fuji, however, the firmware also introduced a problem that can “rarely” cause the camera to freeze when shooting in AF-C mode.

This means you will lose the new version 4.20 features if you have already upgraded.
Fuji says that it plans on a firmware upgrade in late January 2016 to bring back the features from version 4.20 and fix this bug. you can download the new version 4.21 firmware here on Fuji’s website.
