Nikon D300, D300s, D700 and P7700 Firmware Updates

Nikon D700

Nikon has released firmware updates for the Nikon D300, D300s, D700 and P7700.

The firmware updates for the D300, D300s and D700 add support for the new Nikon 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR lens.

The firmware update for the Nikon Coolpix P7700 includes the following improvements:

When shooting with shooting mode set to M (manual) with Flash, and the ISO sensitivity set to Auto, ISO 80-200, ISO 80-400, or ISO 80-800, ISO sensitivity was sometimes not locked at ISO 80 and a different ISO sensitivity was sometimes applied.  This issue has been resolved.

You can download the firmware updates here at Nikon’s website.

 Nikon 800mm f/5.6

Evidence that Nikon’s new 800mm behemoth is shipping to customers in China appeared earlier this week on the Mobile01 forums, where a user posted images of his new $18,000 lens. This should serve as good news to US customers who have pre-ordered the super-telephoto lens, as B&H Photo currently lists it as expected to ship next week on April 4.
