I like it when I can start the new week with a good Sony news-rumor :=)
A source (Thanks!) sent us this text but don’t try to click on the download links. They will work form October 18th only!
Please be informed that the new firmware version 1.06 for SLT-A77 & SLT-A65, and firmware version 1.03 for SLT-A57 & SLT-A37 will be available soon.
Japan is going to make an announcement for this firmware update, but we will handle it as a download content for regional website as it’s only a firmware update.
