Nikon has announced new firmware updates for numerous Nikon Z series cameras. The updates, available today, include firmware version 3.40 for the Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7, firmware version 1.20 for the Nikon Z5 and firmware version 2.20 for the Nikon Z50.

Across the board, the firmware updates include increase autofocus performance. Nikon writes, 'AF usability is enhanced when shooting in low-light situations, through improvements to Face and Eye-Detection performance in scenes where it was difficult to detect faces and eyes when using an external speedlight, as well as improved subject visibility during live view shooting through the viewfinder or monitor.'

Further, firmware 3.40 for the Nikon Z6 and Z7 cameras includes improved tracking frames used for face and eye detection, as well as subject-tracking AF. Eye detection will also be more effective when photographing faces that occupy less space in the frame.

I updated my Z6 and it's pretty dramatic.

These guys demonstrate it with 2 Z6's, one with the the last update and one without. [youtu.be]

I still make portraits without using eye autofocus mostly. I'm used to the regular way.

I don't have that kind of equipment but I did look thru the Nikon cyber monday email they sent today. Nice stuff.

I'm still 100% bitter about my still very useful old 80-200 and other lenses AF locking up and no help from Nikon.

Nikon says "Well help you purchase it and that's about it."
