Re: A99 & Lens Firmware

Glenn, I can not give you the link as I have been all over the web over the last couple of days, but a Sony representative said clearly that for the Sony lenses to function with the double AF system, the CAMERA will be updated and NOT the lens.

He also clearly stated that there will be verylikely no updated for third party lenses or older Minolta ones. I guess it is up to Sigma, Tamron and C.O. to provide those updates. I do believe though that you do not have to send the lens in for those updates. I assume also that future upcoming thrd party lenses will be produced in a way to work with the Sony a99.

Here is a very useful link to directly ask questions and somebody from Sony will indeed answer:

Scroll through all the questions and answers as it is quite informative and it come directly from Sony.

Hope this helps?
Stef.
