Today, with the publishing of the new LFI magazine, Leica announced a new firmware for the S (type 006). With release 2.4.0.0 we should be able to enjoy an enhanced autofocus algorithm with smoother yet faster and more accurate autofocus. Plus a new hyperfocal AF mode. They write it should become available on Leica's website on August 14.

Only the S(006), or new firmware also for the S2?

Anybody knows about this new firmware 2.4.0.0. Yesterday was August 14th, but there was no new firmware. - vintola -

Answering myself: It's out now. Curious if there are any changes for the S2 except support for the 100mm f/2

 

 

Answering myself again: Just installed, and tested autofocus on 120CS and 180mm. I have to judge by memory only, but it seems faster and more precise. Maybe a little noisier, too? When focus changes are big, it seems to go brrrrr-br, with a short fine correction after a very brief pause. Only one incident of hunting (to macro) on the 120CS, otherwise precise and fast.

 

Curious to hear impressions from other users, would be very happy if AF is improved also on the S2, or am I just dreaming?

Does Leica abandon prior models as far a performance enhancements go ? I will be shocked if the only changes coming are lens identification. My S2 is nearly two years old and I'd like to benefit from some development. I'm sure S 006 users will be pissed if there's a base feature improvement on the S007.2/3/4/5.

 

I believe other manufacturers continue to develop firmware for prior models and I'd like to see it here.
