S5 Firmware V1.11 - Why Such Varied Results???
Nov 14, 2008

I've read the threads on this, but have heard no suggested resons for: Why the results after converting to V1.11 are so extremely wide and varied. Sharpness, AF and Exposure all seem to be met with a wide variety of individual experiences after conversion to 1.11.

So.... a couple of questions:
1) Why such a wide variety of effects on the IQ of S5's?

2) Has anyone sent back to Fuji (after conversion) to get the new challenges being experienced fixed? If so, successful or not?

3) Has anyone questioned Fuji on this and did they get a response/reply?

4) Do you recommend trying the conversion or not? I'm running 1.9 at present, and once converted, if it doesn't work well.... can it be set back to the 1.09 V? I've read both ways.
