Yes it was. I realized that the FT-1 was a separate update and not included with the V1.30. I now have successfully downloaded the FT-1. It doesn't seem to provide continuous focus with my 70-300 VR though.

I believe the center AF point limitation still applies in all cases (AF-S and AF-C), so be sure of your point selection first. You might also need to disable any competing AF settings such as Face Detection and treat this just like any base DSLR.
