A notable firmware update is coming to the X-T1 and X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition in June, Fujifilm has announced. With this new version, 4.0, both sleek cameras will welcome a vastly enhanced autofocus system and other under-the-hood upgrades -- all of which are expected to improve performance by a long shot. The new Zone and Wide Tracking modes, for one, are said to make it easier to capture moving subjects, while the AF's accuracy has been tuned to focus faster in low-light conditions and on low-contrast items.

There's also Eye Detection autofocus, Auto Macro mode, Exposure Compensation control for manual users and, when shooting video, an optimized algorithm that promises to deliver a more natural and smooth AF. You'll have to wait a few weeks for the overhauled software, unfortunately -- Fujifilm says it's due to arrive late next month. But at least you know it is, indeed, coming.
