Re: New firmware released from SONY Japan.

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

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.

Re: New firmware released from SONY Japan.

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

Re: New firmware released from SONY Japan.

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.

Re: New firmware released from SONY Japan.

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.
