The fact that the firmware update was SO minor speaks volumes to the fact that Fuji got 99% of the major items correct right out of the gate.

(If the FW had huge fixes, I'd be annoyed at having bought the camera in the first place.)

I have read somewhere that people updating from firmware 1.0 to 1.01 has complained that the AF gets slow like on the x100.

I do not believe that anyone has upgraded from 1.0 to 1.01, because 1.01 was never a downloadable FW update. Some cameras came with 1.0, others with 1.01. Also, as far as I know, there has not been a direct, side-by-side comparison of an X100s with 1.0, with an X100s with 1.01.

Still, many believe that 1.01 AF is slower, based on anecdotal evidence. That may be true, but the belief has not been tested. If, in fact, there is bug in 1.01 that slowed focusing, there might be a hidden fix in 1.02. It will be interesting to hear from 1.01 user who upgrade to 1.02.

"Please proceed..."

Just read some feedback on a French forum : users who upgraded to v1.02 report the impression that it is indeed less hunting (back/forth movement) in good/moderate light, but no real difference in low light.

Anyone else upgraded and got the same impression ?
