● was to eliminate the phenomenon that bleeds through a circular pattern to shoot with the setting of “peripheral illumination correction” to “Auto”.
● Motor sound at the time of AF drive, became quiet than the initial version (Ver1.0).
● Focus in the AF, was further added the modes in which you can fine-tune at the MF.
(You can shoot with a feeling such as DMF)
【Setting method】
