More Nikon Camera Updates

(news and commentary)

Add the D3, D3s, D3x, D7000, and D3200 to the firmware update list today, though the first four seem to only have the change necessary to support the new 800mm f/5.6 lens in EXIF. (It'll be curious to see how far back Nikon rolls the 800mm updates. I'll bet there are some D300 and D700 users who will use that lens, for instance.)

Meanwhile, the D3200 gets a bug fix update (C1.0.1) of its own, with several minor fixes. And somehow an SB-900 firmware installer (5.02) for Mac users snuck in there a couple of days ago without most of us noticing (this apparently is a repackaging of the earlier updates, which was an EXE file only; no new functions, just a new way of applying it). I note also that I didn't mention the WR-R10 update (2.00) earlier last month, either.
