Yes, the downloaded files were each assigned an extra '.DAT' suffix, e.g.


Once I manually renamed each one and added these to the SD card, all was well.

Dave, I can't believe you made the leap. This after swearing the NEX-7 was a keeper (less than a week ago)...

Needless to say, the performance of the camera is astounding to me, the focus seems great actually.

Not entirely sure how it could go wrong if you're just copying DAT files over to the card.

Thanks everyone for solving my download problem. The issue was I needed to remove the extra number (1) on the file name before it would load.

My camera and two lenses (18 and 35) updated without a hitch. At first I failed to notice that there were three separate updates required but the camera told me that I needed to update the lens too.

Just sure you format the SD card in the camera and copy the single .DAT file to it. I did this three times in total.

It's all easy as pie.

I'm loving this camera. My M9 has not left the shelf in two weeks. I really can see life without a Leica now... I can just "see it", that doesn't mean I'm ready to live it just yet.
