    Hi,
    I shot the A7R at ISO 3200 and 6400 to see if there is any difference between the old and new firmware. I don't see much difference, but perhaps others can give their opinions. (Correction: I do see a slight improvement with the new firmware even without NR on once I have them close together to compare)

    ISO 3200 NR off FW 1.01
    13292755254_6f227233ca_k_d.

    ISO 3200 NR off FW 1.02
    13292645813_a53edf7992_k_d.

    ISO 6400 NR off FW 1.01
    13292743494_b834fa4187_k_d.

    ISO 6400 NR off FW 1.02
    13292463905_7f0c47a371_k_d.

    ISO 3200 NR low FW 1.01
    13292399905_4bc492b2a3_k_d.

    ISO 3200 NR low FW 1.02
    13292532675_64230a53ce_k_d.

    ISO 6400 NR low FW 1.01
    13292413365_68ae3c9400_k_d.

    ISO 6400 NR low FW 1.02
    13292918654_0e8b922d7a_k_d.

    ISO 3200 NR normal FW 1.01
    13292605423_72587d9061_k_d.

    ISO 3200 NR normal FW 1.02
    13292521325_50fb10002b_k_d.

    ISO 6400 NR normal FW 1.01
    13292597313_02d18c12b6_k_d.

    ISO 6400 NR normal FW 1.02
    13292938414_5253422ed4_k_d.

    I can clearly see the difference on ISO 3200 NR off between the two firmware updates!

    I expected to laugh this off as impossible to tell, having just update last night but there is a clear improvement! thanks Sony.

    Does this affect the A7 as well?

    Sorry but I do not have an A7 to test. But I think there was mention on SAR of a comparison for A7, which did not show any difference.
