f/m update for F707 customers?
Had they put their 6MP sensor into F717, this camera would cut deeply into D60/D100 sales.

The most valuable in the F717 upgrade is the histogram.

I got F707 when it was released with f/m causing “Blue flash”. Unfortunately Sony distributors were totally confused, uninformed and unresponsive. So, I returned the camera and got later another one when the problem was fixed.

To offer firmware updates is to have happy and repeat customers. Competition offers this and so should Sony. Better yet should offer it, in the future, as d/loads from the Internet like Nikon.
Otherwise this will be regrettably my last Sony camera.

I wonder if Steve has any comment on the F707 upgrade and can pass this to Sony?
