Leica SL Firmware Update 3.6 Released:
Leica just released firmware update 3.6 for the SL for those interested. Speaking of SL, I’m currently working on my Summilux-SL 50mm review, which will have plenty of photos for examples. I should have it out next week. Anyway, the new firmware update features are:
Camera FW 3.6:
- Improvement on compatibility with existing and upcoming lenses from L-Mount Alliance partners.
- Improvement on compatibility with L-Mount lenses that are equipped with an AF/MF selection on the lens.
- Improvement on compatibility with L-Mount lenses that are equipped with an OIS mode switch on the lens.
Lens FW 1.2:
- For the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90 f/2.8-4 ASPH. FW 1.2 reduces the noise from aperture drive while zooming.
Lens FW 1.1:
- For the APO-Vario-Elmarit-SL 90-280 f/2.8-4 FW 1.1 reduces the noise from aperture drive while zooming.
If you install the firmware update 3.6, you do not need to install the lens firmware updates. I haven’t really heard much if any noise from the aperture drive while zooming with my 24-90mm but it will be interesting to see what the difference really is.
