I just did the firmware update on my D7000. When I finish, I go to the firmware version and it says:A: 1.02B: 1.02L: 1.002So I'm trying to understand why there are three numbers, and what does the third number mean?I have Thom Hogan's book and was hoping that would explain it for me. It doesn't. The upgrade instructions on the NIkon site don't explain it, either.This isn't exactly a make or break issue, but if anyone knows the answer I'd sure like to know what it is. Quite honestly, the L number being different from A and B doesn't make me feel too good.
Not to worry, I believe the L: 1.002 is the lens database for distortion control.
It has something to do with the lenses.The L firmware is suppose to “allow more sophisticated distance integration” provided by current and future Nikon lenses.
