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

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.
