Already? Not a great start is it...
My very thought...
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

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
