New firmware has been released by Fujifilm for three of its GFX medium format cameras, in order to "fix minor bugs" but also to improve compatibility with newer lenses.

The Fujifilm GFX 100 II, GFX 50S and GFX 50R are the cameras that are receiving updates. That is not a typo; the original 50S and the 50R haven't had much mention for a long time, with many users thinking that Fujifilm had passed them over for the newer GFX 50S II. Instead, the new firmware specifically brings these classic GFXes into the modern day.
