This announcement hit some of the Sony European sites earlier. I don't see it on the U.S. Sites yet. A word of caution. There are some subtle differences between the European and U.S. DSLR-A700 camera bodies (i.e., the European version doesn't have the grip sensors).

The firmware is likely the same. But, you may want to wait on Sony to post the firmware on their site for the country you live in to make sure there are no differences before installing it.

Firmware Version 2 for DSLR-A700 (Sony Europe)

Announced Improvements (and sometimes fixes go in new firmware that are not announced, too):
  • The picture sharpness is better under low contrast conditions.[/*]
  • Noise is reduced when working at high sensitivity ISO setting.[/*]
  • The flash control is better at close range with a non-ADI control lens.[/*]
Update:

New firmware and application software is now available from the Sony U.S. sites. See more on our breaking news page here:
