Hi,

anybody here bought D800 recently?
I got my second one this morning and it has 3070xxx serial number.
I was wondering if it's a recently manufactured one, because the firmware version is 1.01.

Anybody?

Regards,
Peter

Firmware A:1.01/B:1.02 was released around the beginning of April this year.

Does the 800 and 800E use the same firmware versions?

The firmware versions appear to be the same but the file names are different where the D800E file has the E in the file name.

Len, thanks for clearing that up.

Is anyone running Windows 8 having a problem running the download file? Or am I doing this firmware update all wrong? Thanks all,

Bob

I checked the nikon site and could find no new firmware update. Where did you find the latest update? (L1.009)

Just received my D800E today with serial # 5003XXX. It has the latest software included.
(I just have to learn a lot to get the best out of it.) But what a camera!
