  • Autofocus-response performance in focus mode C (Continuous-servo AF mode) with relatively dark subjects has been increased.
  • When the AF-ON button is pressed, the monitor turns off and a focus point can now be selected using the multi selector.
  • Photo information displayed in full-frame playback has been modified as follows:
  • HI-, LO- has been changed to Hi, Lo
  • WARM TONE has been changed to WARM FILTER
  • COLOR CUSTOM has been changed to COLOR BALANCE
  • Manamah, displayed in the Time zone options for the World time item in the setup menu, has been changed to Manama.

  • When the Speedlight SB-800 was mounted on the camera with flash mode set to Distance-priority manual (GN) mode, and then the exposure meters were reactivated or the camera was turned on, the distance information displayed on the SB-800 changed. This issue has been resolved.
  • An issue that, in some rare cases, caused images captured with the following lenses to be under-exposed, has been resolved.
