Ordinarily, Leica rolls out firmware updates one camera, or at least one camera system, at a time. But for this round, multiple product teams coordinated their efforts, resulting in five cameras getting firmware updates simultaneously in one day. While slightly overwhelming for us to provide in-depth reports on each one, this methodology is great for users.
Cameras like the Q received more significant updates than others, but there seems to be two overriding goals at play. The first, creating greater user interface uniformity between all the various camera systems, makes switching between systems much easier. And the second, adding features and options found on newer models to older cameras, shows Leica's commitment to supporting its users. Rarely do companies offer the kind of continuing firmware updates on previous generation cameras that Leica does.
