thanks!

i have 1.02, is that the latest firmware? i did do an update.

its a tough call between prime or basically replacing an already OK lens with another possibly inferior one, but smaller... hmmmm, dilemma. Lol. Sitting on the fence is the easiest option at the moment

Am tempted by the Sigma 30mm prime, the only thing putting me off is the 2.8 aperture. I would really want to go to 1.8 if i am going prime. But the price is tempting, only 126chf here in switzerland.

Yes, but you also need to do the lens firmware update, 1.01. Unless yours is a NEX-6 in which case the camera and 1650 lens updates were already done in the factory, or by the supplier. (I don't know which.)
