I read in another thread that this firmware supposedly speeds up camera boot time. That is something I want!! Can anybody with the new firmware time how long it takes to boot so we can compare?
Also - any news on Sonys upgrade policy for this update and what other changes are made?

If true I hope it also speeds up Media mode boot time. Switching back and forth between the two modes while the client is looking.... and waiting... is not fun.

At least one person believes 1.13 firmware is only for South America. Anyone corroborate this?

Well here's one reason.

I just HAD to have 1.13 installed, i'll explain why.

A little while ago my lens focus ring went sticky/stiff, so i rang prime support and they told me too take it to sony service centre, i drove there as it's only 1 hour from my house.

The technician look at the camera, said it needs a new lens,, i get a call from prime support a few days later, the new lens is in stock so bring the camera back, so off i go, get the new lens fitted, all is good,
until !!
i connect my libec controller to the camera lens and what happens, the zoom starts creeping out to wide on it's own,and the top zoom rocker gets disabled, i'm like wtf !, obviously this only happens on servo zoom, full manual zoom is fine.

So off i go back to prime support and they tell me that the new lens is not the same as the old one, i say it looks the same, but the technician tells me it's all different on the inside, been modified.
They look at the notes on their system and one note says that the latest lens NEEDS the latest firmware to work with the libec contoller.
I had the 1.13 firmware applied today, i've litterally just got through my front door, and all is now good.

Oh and it all cost me nothing.

Paul.
