I do believe it was. I don't see the issue on my Ex1r.

I didn't check to be honest. Tight deadline and too many other things to look at. It's not going to be worse than an EX1R.

I do think it is a significant improvement.

Wouldn't it be lovely if they could provide the 4:2:2 50Mbs as an upgrade to the F3.

IR issue was improved in the F3 as well, not eliminated but greatly improved.

4:2:2 50 Mbps isn't coming to the F3. It is a chipset issue rather than firmware.

No surprise that is not coming, but just for geek grins could you elaborate on the chipset issue?

The F3 really wants a 10 bit codec like ProRes.

I don't know what the full feature set for the WiFi options will be. You will need to buy a CKK-WA01 wifi adapter. Then you will be able to use an iOS device or an Android device to control rec start/stop, focus and zoom as well as further function. I would guess that you will also be able to control gain and shutter speed. In addition you should be able to use XM-Pilot to log material and add metadata as you shoot.
