Yes, a user reported that the updates corrects the focusing behaviour, at least on the 85 GM it's now focusing wide open instead of at shooting aperture when settings effect is OFF.

Great news indeed!

Not wide open but 2.0.
On 24-70 4.0 and 70-200 4.0 closes at 5.6 (setting effect OFF).
With setting effect ON it closes at the shooting aperture.

Why would it stop down slightly when focusing? To reduce focus shift?

Thanks for the correction. F 2.0 should be more than sufficient.

Yes, I think this is done to correct focus shift on some lenses.
If one stop is not enough one can always turn setting effects on.

Flash lag time improvement and a lot more. Someone has been listening. We've been screaming about some of these folks. Good to see Sony giving us these updates. I'll load up soon here.

Keep reporting any findings you see.

They added a new function to the custom button, so that's possible. Would have been nice to have the Crop Mode/APS-C mode added in there as well. It is a real pain going in to the menus for that every time...

Wow! Big update. Taking some time to go through the process too ( for the a7rII). Some reading material why I wait:

"Changes in the operations for moving the focus area position"

Improvement in image quality for long long exposures with noise reduction turned off?
Does this mean
(a) no star eater algorithm (i.e. less processing)
or
(b) additional filtering

I'm hoping it's (a)!

That's great, it gives the new A6500 style AF point selection.
