    Of course I'm probably the last to know about this, but I learned today that firmware release v4.01 is available for the A7Rii. It was released back on May 15th.

    According to Sony, the firmware offers the following for the A7Rii:
    • Added Auto Pwr OFF Temp. function
      NOTE: If the same part of your skin touches the camera for a long period of time while using the camera, even if the camera does not feel hot to the touch, it may cause symptoms of a low-temperature burn such as redness or blistering. Pay special attention in the following situations and take the necessary precautions, for example, use a tripod.
      • When using the camera in a high-temperature environment
      • When someone with poor circulation or impaired skin sensation uses the camera
      • When using the camera with the Auto Pwr OFF Temp. function set to High
    • Improved operability of the camera:
      1. Improved operability when AF area is set to flexible spot
        Added Live View Display into custom button assignation
      2. Added Set File Name function
    • Supports visible light LED in external flash for AF (HVL-F45RM)
    • Improved release time lag when wireless flash is used
    • Optimized exposure algorithm during focusing when Live View Display has Setting Effect OFF
    • Improved image quality when Long Exposure NR setting is OFF
    • Improved overall stability of the camera
    • Support for Radio-controlled Lighting System
    • Improves stability of the camera while shooting still images by regulating the internal temperature
    • Overall stability and operability of the camera is improved.
    So I did the download, used my AC-PW20 to power my camera for the install, and then did the firmware update. I haven't had a chance to check out any of the purported benefits yet, but I can report that the firmware update installs without issue. Always good to know the firmware is the latest and greatest - my assumption is Sony wouldn't release a firmware update unless there was a good reason to do so.
