Nikon Finally Deals with AF-P in Firmware

A number of Nikon DSLR cameras got firmware updates today, basically to give them better
AF-P support:

  • D4 A1.11 B1.11 — Fixed AF-P support and fixed another bug that occurs with Camera Control Pro 2
  • D4S C1.33 — Fixed AF-P support
  • Df C1.02 — Fixed AF-P support, another bug that occurs with Camera Control Pro 2, and corrected exposure for E-type lenses
  • D800 A1.11 B1.11 — Fixed AF-P support and fixed another bug that occurs with Camera Control Pro 2
  • D800E A1.11 B1.11 — Fixed AF-P support and fixed another bug that occurs with Camera Control Pro 2
  • D810 C1.13 — Fixed AF-P support and fixed bugs for multiple exposure and microphone sensitivity
  • D810A C1.03 — Fixed AF-P support and fixed bugs for multiple exposure and microphone sensitivity
  • D7100 C1.04 — Fixed AF-P support, another bug that occurs with exposure for E-type lenses
  • D7200 C1.03 — Fixed AF-P support and fixed bug for microphone sensitivity

Note that some of these cameras are getting their first firmware update in four years. This is Nikon catching up with what they should have already done. Sadly, they did not completely catch up: most of these cameras still have the "no menu item to turn VR off for the DX lenses." So we still have three classes of bodies: compatible, mostly compatible, incompatible.

I've updated my AF-P Compatibility page.
