You don't need to download it from the US or Australian site. Just visit your local Sony site - the update will be there ( in support ).

I've done the update, just as how it was described. Now, my nex6 has pdaf for alll my lenses, including the sigma 30mm f2.8 and my Tamron 18-200. Couldnt be more happy.

Follow the instructions carefully, what happened to me was i did the nex6 firmware update, completed it totally, and then did the lensupdate for the 24mm zeiss. It was succesfully updated also, and then... i had i brick, the camera didnt respond to nothing anymore. Not knowing what to do i reconnected it with usb,nothing happened, was reading how to do a hard reset (here) http://photography.forumsee.com/a/m/s/p12-19211-082025--how-hard-reset-the-nex-update-relatedhow-hard-reset-the-nex-update-related.html

and while reading this suddenly my camera was connected again with the computer. i disconnected, and everything was fine. Happy me!

It seems that all none native lenses will be able to benefit from the pdaf af from now on.

Greetings, Rob.

Hi Rob,

I updated the firmware for the NEX6 and it went well. I have the SEL35f18 and the kitlens 16-50mm. Do I have to do a lens firmware update for those two lenses? I dont recall seeing that.
