Nice one! This brings the NEX-7 to version 1.02; mainly for the 16-50 PZ.

Ran the update on my 5N.  Worked fine, didn't have any issues.  The corrections now show in live-view for the 16-50!

I'm happy.

No downloadable firmware for SEL18200LE
In reply to myDingling, Feb 5, 2013

Instruction is not clear on how to obtain firmware for SEL18200LE lens. There seems to be no downloadable file...

From what I could understand (via Google translation), SEL18200LE needs to be sent back to Sony for update.

A while ago another site mentioned it and I had hoped it is not true.

I did the upgrade on a US NEX-5N. No problems.

Could be me but it did mention AF speed and it (AF) does seem more responsive.

How did you find the download link on the NEX-7 page? I can't find it (and I can't read Japanese).

Never mind. I finally found the link. So this is safe for a U.S. model?

Firmware is region independent.

18200LE has an update for the NEX6 and NEX5, but will require you to send it to Sony. I assume that later today, the updates will be out for English regions.

yes my Canadian 7 updated fine, manual focus only shooters can prob skip this update, exposure bracketing still can't be used with remote or timer.

Just updated my NEX-5R. From what I see so far, the SEL18200LE needs to be send to Sony for updating, so I need to wait for Sony USA to start the procedure for the lens.
