FinePix/Nikon Lens Combo Service Advisory

Nikon & FujiFilm technical issueIf your kit includes a FujiFilm FinePix S3 or S2 Pro body paired with a Nikon VR 18-200mm lens, you’ll want to get the updated firmware to fix a focusing bug.  In fact, the Nikon 18-200mm lens may also have the issue on Nikon’s D70, D2H, and D100 camera bodies. 

The Problem: (quoted from FujiFilm’s website)
“When the zoom is set to the wide-angle position, if you attempt to focus using AF (Auto Focus) when the distance scale is set to infinity (∞), the camera may very occasionally fail to focus on close- up subjects.”

If you fit the hardware setup, and this issue sounds familiar, get on over to Nikon or FujiFilm‘s websites for the fix.
