A6k: problem updating lens firmware
2 weeks ago

I've bitten the bullet and bought an A6000 body, and almost the first thing I decided to do was to update the firmware on the three lenses I have that need version 2 for PDAF. I found and downloaded the three update files without problems.

The update worked OK for the SEL1855 (which I barely use these days, as I also have the Zeiss 16-70), but the update repeatedly fails (with a process aborted message that tells me to repeat the whole process from the beginning) with my SEL18200 and SEL50F18. The message gives no clues about what I'm doing wrong or should change. The PC is running 64-bit Win 7SP1. Both the PC and the camera are otherwise working fine, and a reboot of the PC made no difference.

Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions?
