Based on initial reports I've seen on other forums, the system crashes using continuous mode have been fixed (some users reported this fixed in the earlier 1.01 firmware that was not released to the public).

I'm hearing positive comments from a user regarding the banding problems, too.

However, reports are mixed as to whether or not it actually totally fixes the problem with the clock losing time. This is a minor problem, and would not bother me.

As to the cameras tendency to overexposesome scenes,it's too early to tell if any work was done there (although you could easily useExposure Compensation to correct for this).

From what a user in Japan reported earlier, Konica-Minolta was actually recalling the cameras from the shops there; and is now shipping models with 1.02 installed.

So far I could make my camera freeze every time under certain conditions in continuous advance mode. Installing the new firmware last night worked like a charm. This was the only real problem I ever had with the cam and now it's fixed )
