AF-F and AF-S difference also existed in the previous FW

The LV screen image quality looks exactly the same before and after the upgrade IF the camera is set to AF-F focusing mode. Maybe that explains the several reports of "no change".

Things are tremendously better (than AF-F) when you switch the camera to AF-S mode. I didn't think to check that before/after the firmware upgrade [ ... ]

I haven't upgraded yet (even though I plan to do soon), but I just tested the AF-S vs. AF-F LV on the older FW.

It shows a similar difference; AF-F looks significantly worse than AF-S mode.

Obviously I cannot determine if the new FW improves it further on my camera; just wanted to confirm that the difference between AF-F and AF-S was also present in the previous FW.
