Hello XFFs 

 

I use a Fuji X-T2 and I've had the 50-140 2.8 for a couple years and love it.    I recently picked up a used copy of the XF2X TC teleconverter over an internet transaction.   It arrived today, I popped it on the body, mounted the 50-140 and when I turned it on, the LCD started flashing and the camera was clicking.  

 

I was disappointed until I remembered that the 50-140 needed a firmware update to operatewith with the TC, so I downloaded and applied the update (1.00 -> 1.21)  to the 50-140 lens but the problem persists!  In my head I vaguely remember there might have been a need to apply the firmware updates in a certain order, but I'm not sure and web searches have not been helpful. 

 

Did I get screwed on a dud TC by an internet scoundrel? Or am I just missing something obvious?

- Update body
- Update lens (without tc attached)
- Update tc if available

If it still does not work, the tc is probably defective

Confirmed this is the case -- on very close inspection, one of the connector pins is slack.    But the seller agreed to return/refund.  Whew!!    Thanks for replying!
