Summary:

1, All the AF point disappear suddenly, and could not switch off the camera and could not change some of the setting within the menu.

2,The camera hang suddenly and you have to remove battery and restart the camera.

3,A few people has put a Sigma lens on the camera and all the focus point loss forever.
No more AF for any lens(include Sony's), and need to return to CS to fix it.

4,It needs more than 10sec to turn off the camera.
Sometimes you turned off the camera, but it is still working,
the battery drop from 9x% -> 9% after a few hours.

5, The orientation of the menu does not show correctly.

6,The Aperture & Shutter setting malfunction suddenly, need to remove battery and restart the camera.

7,The position of the electronic level shift to the top part of the LCD. Need to restart the camera to back to normal position.

8,The camera hang during shooting in high speed mode .

I have just ordered one from Hong Kong, and it will arrive Japan next Monday.
I just hope Sony could update the firmware and solve all the problem ASAP.
