Fujifilm has released an emergency firmware update as a resolution to an issue with recently released firmware. 

The Fujifilm XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR received a firmware update last month that was intended to 'improve exposure tracking during zoom operation' when used with several of the best Fujifilm cameras. It appears that although fixing this issue, the firmware update created a larger issue which led to Fujifilm suspending downloads. An emergency countermeasure update has now been released for the lens, resetting the previous firmware for those who have already downloaded and installed it.
