Hi,

I have the Nex-6 with the power zoom 16-55. It's an excellent lens but I prefer manual zoom control so I'm probably going to sell it and get hold of a black 18-55mm.

Question - can the black 18-55mm work with PDAF and does it need a firmware update? I assume it's technically identical to the silver version.

Here in the UK the black 18-55mm is only supplied with the NEX-7 kit as far as I know - is that right? I guess I can find someone with a NEX-7 looking for a power zoom though.

Thanks!

Yes you will need to upload firmware v.2 for the 18-55 lens, and you must do so while the lens is on your NEX-6 camera. I just did the same for my new 5R. Same thing to get PDAF on the Zeiss 24, and the telephoto lenses.
