"CX Lenses Firmware Update V1.10 Released"



Nikon has released Version 1.10 firmware for the 10-30mm and 30-110mm CX lenses. The update allows Nikon J2 cameras to be shut off by collapsing the lenses to their carry position.

Find links to the firmware and more details after the jump to Nikonians News...

Nikon is being pretty coy in how they are handling this release. While the description refers to Nikon 1 cameras released on and after August 2012, the NikonUSA website shows the latest release for the two lenses as 1.10 rather than 1.02 for V1/J1 and 1.10 for the J2 and future releases. I guess it means that the 1.10 release is not a problem for an older model, it just won't do anything. Saying that would have been helpful.

Agreed. It's been a game of "read-between-the-lines," even when people noted the possibility of power-off when they drilled down the technical specs of the CX 11-27 when it was released. Nikon knows they're not fooling anyone, but USA can't make a move without Japan HQ's assent, so they have to play this charade...

Does anyone know if Nikon will issue an update so that the J1 and V1 can be turned off when the lens barrel is collapsed and locked?
It would seem to be a simple "fix" to me but, who knows?

Unfortunately only Nikon knows and they aren't talking. But indications are that they won't be doing this in order to create some distinction for the J2 which is otherwise not very distinctive.

I just got off of the phone with the Nikon techs in Toronto and they tell me that the camera is supposed to shutdown when the lenses are closed down and locked. They want the camera & lenses sent to Toronto to rectify the problem.

They claim that the meaning of the phrase having to do with August 2012 is that all cameras shipped to dealers from August will have the updates installed.

Very confusing, to say the least!

Hmmm... interesting. We'll have to keep an eye on it.

No Armando, I have a V1 purchased in November, 2011.

I have both the 10-30mm and 30-110mm lenses as well as the 10mm.

A good friend & dealer is at the Nikon facility in Richmond, BC today and will be discussing these issues with the chief tech. As soon as I hear something I will let the board know.

To confirm - you have a J1 and they know that?

Are you sending it back in?
