Ex-3 firmware 1.05_0094

Yesterday I called sony Teaneck NJ, to drop my ex3 off for a firmware upgrade... after getting the 12 day wait time speech, I spoke with a gentlemen who arranged for me to drop it off this morning and pick it up this afternoon.

Everything went as promised and I picked up the camera at 2 pm. Upon returning home i checked out the focus issues i was having and all seems to be good to go.

Anyhow.. the reason I am even posting this is because the firmware update I got is...
1.05_0094. I have no idea what's changed from the previous versions... if anyone does feel free to chime in.

The service was excellent and I was covered under warranty.

Oh yeah, the million dollar question... MxR, SDHC seems unaffected!

found it. while the camera is set to camera. hold/press down on the Menu, Scroll Wheel, and Cancel buttons at the same time. then scroll down to IF and it'll display your firmware.

Thanks Michael, I had tried looking for it. There was no mention of it in the Manual. The technique reveals a couple of other menu topics I did not know about either.

My EX3 got back from Sony Teaneck NJ. I had a lens problem. They replaced the lens and updated the firmware.
Every thing went smooth; good service there. My firmware was 1.02... and is now 1.04_0089. Date of service was the end of August.
Don't know what the differce is. Perhaps Sony will explain someday??!!
