There was a mention prior to launch from some folks here that Sony softwatre may be an issue. So not a good start, but it seems to be acted on quickly

If you use Canon and Nikon what's the problem?

"If you use Canon and Nikon what's the problem?"

It's still news though.

Welcome to the world of Sony.

I believe that you should judge a company on how they fix their problems, not that a problem exists in the first place.

you might already 0 but look what it actually fixes not very much at all is the truth. Even the Nikon D2X had a fix this quick when it came out
