Leica Camera AG introduce new Firmware updates for the Leica S system, enabling owners of a Leica S (Typ 006), Leica S2 or Leica S2-P to further enhance their camera's performance. FW 184.108.40.206. (for Leica S) and FW 220.127.116.11. (for Leica S2 and S2-P) are available as free downloads from the Leica Homepage, starting from 16 September 2014.
Particularly the new FW 18.104.22.168. for the Leica S (Typ 006) contains a multitude of improvements, resulting in a significantly higher performance of the camera and all S lenses. It is the most comprehensive Firmware update since the S system was introduced. An entirely revised Autofocus algorithm improves the camera's AF performance, as well as enabling a significantly faster and more precise focus. The update also optimises the AF control of all S lenses.
In addition, both FW 22.214.171.124. (for the Leica S) and FW 126.96.36.199. (for the Leica S2 and S2-P) are designed to support the Leica Summicron-S 100 mm f/2 Asph, ensuring an optimised performance of the lens on either of the three cameras.
