Yes and yes. I have the new firmware installed and I have a few of the fastest Sandisk Extreme Pro UHS-I's on the market. I shoot in RAW most times and have now eliminated shooting in both RAW and JPG to save space and to cut down on write times.

I encourage you to test this after shooting several images rapidly as the write time will increase and your focus zoom will be rendered useless while you wait.

It isn't a huge issue and the X-Pro1 is still my favorite camera that I use, but it gave me an issue during a shoot last week while shooting a model in a location that required us to move quickly. I don't know how much the new firmware will help. What I do know is that the new firmware did not eliminate the problem altogether. It is still there but with faster write speeds. I have no idea how much the speed has improved the issue.
