Wondering about my D2x initial wake up?

I just received a new D2x yesterday and I must admit I was a little surprised just how heavy and big the camera is. My first impression of the D200 was “how cute”, my first impression of the D2x was “wow, what a machine”.
Wanting to test the focus, I quickly charged the battery, stuck on my 28-70, turned the camera on, went though the menu, checked everything, put the camera to my eye, pressed the shutter for focus and nothing! I tried and tried, rechecked my settings and still nothing, almost as if the battery was dead. Now I’m starting to panic. All of a sudden I got a little life out of the camera but it wouldn’t focus, just in and out and would stop on infinity. I then manually focused and took one picture just to see if that did anything. Well, I then started to get a little more life but still it was pretty bad. I decided to check the filmware, Ver.1.00. So, even though the vender said it had the latest filmware, it didn’t. I then loaded the 1.01 and now it seems to be working fine. Humm.. go figure.
I’m curious if other people experienced this initial wake up scenario. Also, I did notice that my first picture was lucky #13. No big deal but is that typical?
