Maybe others have covered this but…

While playing around with the Lens Control Ring assignments after installing the latest round of firmware updates it became apparent the M/A Focus (M/A) option was missing from the Z 7II and Z 6II. This is understandable since all Z FX lenses have a dedicated focus ring on the lens barrel, both zoom and prime lenses.

This option is still available on the Z 6 (and I assume on the Z 7) after installing the 3.30 firmware release today. I'm not sure what the logic is for including this option on a Z 6 and Z 7.

This option is also on the Z50. This makes good sense since neither of the Z50 kit lenses has a dedicated focus ring but both have a Lens Control Ring. This option makes it possible to hand focus the Z50 with either of the kit lenses by using the Lens Control Ring.

The latest firmware also seems to have fix an intermittent issue where the menu would not open when the menu button was pressed on both the Z 6II and Z 7II right after turning the camera on.
