Just downloaded and installed the new firmware V1.02 on my A7. Some posts on dpreview indicated there were no real problems; one guy had to do 3 attempts to finally get his camera working again, so having seen that I picked up the download at Sony's Australian site, not being available yet on the Dutch site yet (as of 11.40 local time it is; noooo, I'm not an impatient person ). Effortless install, I made sure to exactly follow the instructions. Startup seems faster indeed, and I suddenly got a message that I could upload pictures via WiFi to my PC, which I never managed to do before . Nice! Wednesday is my midweek day off, so I'll surely exercise the camera more today .
