There is  a Lexar recall on 2 batches of their 1000X CF cards because they did not work properly with the D4s.  Apparently this D4 firmware update extends the problem to the D4.  Lexar will replace the cards free of charge (although you have to pay the shipping).  I had 2 affected cards.  I decided to replace them just to "future proof" them before the D4 firmware update was announced.   I called Lexar and got a RMA with no hassle.  You can find info for the Lexar recall at http://www.lexar.com...0x-firmware.pdf

 

Note that it is difficult to read the code on the edge of the cards.  A strong light helps.

By the way.... with this firmware update, we have trap focus. Read here about how to set it.

The trap is a single frame. That is kind of a downer. It does work, however.

If you are in CH  or CL the camera will keep firing as long as the subject is in focus.

It's not making a large change, restores trap focus for the most the part. I updated and word fine.

On the F4, you could get a back that set trap focus. For wild life, you set the focus at one spot, and if something became in focus, like a bear or a rabbit, the camera took the shot. Some where along the line, that function disappeared a bit, but came back in the digitals on the pro bodies, and now the D800 has it. You could use it for sports, like a bike race, set a focus point and when the rider came into focus, it will shoot it.

... Some where along the line, that function disappeared a bit, but came back in the digitals on the pro bodies, and now the D800 has it. ...

Trap focus actually disappeared with the introduction of the D4 and D800.  Trap focus works on my D300 and I believe D90 too.  Firmware updates have now restored trap focus to the D800 and D4.  The D4s has trap focus in the initial release.  I don't know how far down the DSLR line trap focus works. maybe on all bodies that allow programing  back button only focus.

 

Note:  I applied the firmware update to my D4 as soon as the update was released.  I also did the similar update to my D800e.  I have not had any shooting sessions that would demonstrate an improvement  in AF performance of either camera  since the updates.   More importantly, I have not noticed any negative effects of the updates.

Trap focus??? Does that mean that we'll encounter D4's strapped to trees when next in the forest?

If it's mine I'm going to be very close by.  I think an unattended set up might be a moral test for too many people.

 

I'm more likely to set it up at my backyard bird feeder and watch through the window with a cold beverage at my side.
