Sony FE Lens Software Update v02

Sony-FE-Lens-Software-Update-v02

Sony has released a software update that shortens start up time of select FE full-frame E-mount lenses including SEL35F28Z, SEL55F18Z, SEL2470Z, SEL2870 and SEL70200G when mounted on Sony E-mount camera bodies. An additional software release for lens performance will be available in late March.

Improvements:

This update provides the ‘Quick Start’ function.

Notes:

This is a lens update – not camera update. You must run each updates one at a time with the lens attached to a supported E-mount body (NEX-5, NEX-3, NEX-C3, NEX-VG10 or PXW-FS7 are not supported). You can install all the updates from a single supported E-mount camera body and it will be compatible with all the E-mount bodies you own.

Sony SEL1635Z and SELP28135G and lenses released after October 2014 already have the “Quick start” function and thus do not need to be updated.

First check to make certain your lens is not already upgraded to version 02
Menu > Setup > Version > Lens
If the Lens is version 01 (or less) you should run the update.

Download Links:

Each lens has it’s own firmware patch so it you have all five listed FE lenses you’ll need to download an install the appropriate firmware for each. This is a lens update only so it will work with any supported E-mount camera body – you don’t need to do it for each.
