Focus accuracy when a lens and teleconverter with a combined maximum aperture of f/8 is used has been increased.
Modifications enabled with firmware, release date July 4, 2012
An issue that caused the camera to freeze when attempting to format a memory card (setup menu>Format memory card) while the camera was connected to a network in HTTP server mode has been resolved. Format memory card can now be added to My Menu. Gamut for Adobe RGB images displayed in the camera's monitor has been changed. This enables more vivid display of images. The stability of network connections when the FTP upload option is selected has been increased. When recording movies using a lens with an aperture ring in
or exposure mode, and Aperture ring selected for Custom Setting f10: Customize command dials>Aperture setting, the minimum aperture was applied. This issue has been resolved. When a still image captured during movie recording with 1920 ×1080; 30 fps; crop, 1920 × 1080; 25 fps; crop, or 1920 × 1080; 24 fps; crop selected for Movie settings>Frame size/frame rate and Live frame grab selected for Custom Setting g4: Assign shutter button was displayed in Capture NX 2 or ViewNX 2, the position of the focus point displayed differed from actual recording position. This issue has been resolved. --

When a still image was captured while viewing existing images in playback mode, the monitor turned off, the memory card access lamp glowed steadily, and, in some rare cases, the camera ceased to respond to operations. This issue has been resolved.
When network functions were used with certain settings applied, RAW images were also transferred when Network > Send file as was set to JPEG only. This issue has been resolved.
When an option that utilized the main command dial was selected for Custom Setting f15: Playback zoom, and an image was zoomed in or out with playback with certain settings applied, shooting shutter speed, aperture, and exposure compensation settings were sometimes changed. This issue has been resolved.
Hope this helps.

Just updated mine but did have a hitch-when I inserted my card & selected Firmware it kept not prompting for the new version despite having opened the file - finally I read the small disclaimer where Nikon states that if you have your NETWORK ON it will not allow the update prompt when Card is inserted-I turned off/disabled my Network & then I got the update firmware prompt .
Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.
I shot a play on Friday night with the new firmware. No issues and very sure-footed AF. Trying to cull the images but very little to outright delete since the camera never misses (although I do occasionally ).
Downloaded the update and after CAREFULLY READING THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS PROCESS SEVERAL TIMES I had complete success in completing the upload to the camera. This was my first attempt at doing this with my brand new D4. No problems with a couple of new photos.
I have just updated both of mine. There is one undocumented trick that you need to know (or at least that I needed). i have the XQD card set up as my primary card. When I tried to upgrade from the bin file on the CF card there was no update option. In both of my D4s I needed to remove the XQD card before I could update. Then no problem. Hope it helps if anyone else is having the same problem.

I am unable to update to the latest firmware, A 1.03 and B 1.02. Followed instruction and disable network. The format menus show orange "yes ok" instead of the yellow "yes ok". I am currently using a Sandisk Ultra 8 GB CF card. Anyone having the same problem?

Thanks for your reply. Battery is fully charged. I tried updating it again and it failed. I sent an email to Nikon support. Hopefully they'll provide me a solution. Don't want to send my camera in for repair.
I've been using the scroll wheel center button instead of the "OK" button. I thought the scroll wheel center button and the "OK" button are interchangeable. Mystery problem solved. Thanks again for all your assistance.
