A2 FW 1.14 and RAW Speeds - Report Here Pls

I downloaded the file from the Japanese site and upgraded my A2. Now the firmware shows up as 1.14u (not 1.14j) in the camera, so I guess it is the same file for everybody.

I was hoping for improved write speeds with Kingston cards, I have a 1GB regular (Orange) and a 2GB Elite Pro (Blue). Well, I am sorry to report that 1.14 is worse than 1.13 in the regard. Both cards perform identically with 1.14

  • 22 sec to write 1RAW

  • 58 sec to write 3 RAWs.

Camera in M mode (1/400 and 2.8) and MF, with lens cap on.
Time measured with stop clock from time shutter pressed to red light stops.

With the 1.13, the Orange 1GB performed the same, but the Blue Elite Pro performed slightly better. Lemme see if I can find the exact times.

Sigh!
