Fuji ‘X’ June 9 Firmware Updates — First Real Problem, 50-140 Lens.
This looks bad. Kind of had the feeling that any problems would show up in ‘less used’ products, particularly lenses, and that seems to be the case here.
Scary. You feel so helpless. When this happens you are ‘DEAD IN THE WATER’.
Poster is now reflecting that MAYBE he should have waited ‘for the dust to settle’. I already decided to wait till Monday (rather than Sunday). SMILE.
As an ol’ programmer I consider this atrocious programming. Rather than displaying ‘Firmware Broken‘ at least have the decency to ROLL BACK the update, get the lens to a semi-operable state and say “Update failed. Reinstall previous Firmware Version’. But I, for 40 years, have NEVER considered the Japanese to be very good programmers! Think about it. What has Japan done on the SOFTWARE front? Google, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter … List goes on. Good with hardware.
