I just minutes ago loaded the new FW. Had a 105 f2.8 attached and I use the AF on to focus with AF-C. I panned around the room with the focus button held down and the camera focused almost instantly on everything it saw, I stopped on a two foot tall wooden giraffe in a very dark corner, pressed the shutter and with F2.8 I got a razor sharp image ( VR was on)

Almost no hunting at all with my 105 2.8 after the FW update. my 24-70 2.8 snaps into focus faster than before. Haven't tried my other lenses yet.
