MINOR bug in A6500 firmware update .04?

While I read that the update was designed for video, and I almost never do video, I decided to install it yesterday. Who knows what minor, undocumented tweaks were included. Besides, it will be included in .05 anyway.

I shoot a lot using manual, adapted lenses, so I had the delete button set to trigger the manual Focal Length setting for IBIS. It was working fine yesterday morning. I installed the update yesterday evening and this morning when I pressed the delete button to adjust the focal length absolutely nothing happened. Repeat presses had the same non-effect.

I then decided to try assigning the function to the C1 button. The process appeared to work but when I press the C1 button I get a Function not available with this lens error.

Luckily if I use the menu to reset the focal length it works fine. Slow and cumbersome but I don't foresee a need to quickly change the focal length. I don't use extreme zoom manual lenses.

It's a pain but one I can live with. I would just ask if anyone else has seen this with their A6500?

Just an Armadillo on the shoulder of the information superhighway.
