Another NEW-7 firmware comparison before/after

The following composites are 9 images taken before, and then after, updating to the 1.01 firmware on the NEX-7.  I took images with the 16mm, the 16mm+UWA, and Zeiss C Biogon *T 35mm/2.8.

Camera set to Aperture Priority, ISO100, RAW+JPG.  These composites were made from the *RAW* images, unprocessed, exported from Lightroom and reduced in size.  Composite is laid out this way:

16mm/2.8   16mm/5.6    16mm/10

UWA/2.8     UWA/5.6      UWA/10

CZ35/2.8     CZ35/5.6     CZ35/10

firmware 1.00

firmware 1.01

So it looks like the firmware update does affect the RAW output (and helps a lot!), but did not help with the RF lens.  Still this lens can take really nice pictures (it is for sale BTW if you're interested!):

C Biogon firmware 1.01

Sony Alpha NEX-7
