    hi all,

    hows it going? im anxiously waiting for my X-E1, which is coming in tomorrow. my question is hat i dont have any fuji lenses, as far as i've read is that i need a fuji lens to update the camera FW (the focus peaking capability is kinda important to me since ill be shooting with LTM's and M mount lenses)

    does the Fuji cameras sold these days come with the updated FW or can i update it without a Fuji lens (im really hoping)?

    thanks guys. i appreciate all the help i can get since im nwe to the system

    I've never heard that there has to be lens on the body to upgrade the body.

    You need a specific body version before certain lens updates can be done, but not the other way round.

    Update the body and all will be well. I'd not worry about it much. If you bought a new X-E1 the latest should be in it it, but if not in two weeks a new update is coming out so you could even wait for that.
