Nikon also announced new firmware updates v1.40 for the Z7II and Z6II cameras

Another previously rumored Nikon Z6II/Z7II firmware update got officially announced today (to be released on April 20, 2022):

  • Improved AF performance for still images, background omission during auto-area AF is suppressed, making it easier to focus on the subject in the center of the screen.
  • Compatible with “remote control ML-L7”

“With firmware version 1.40 for the Nikon Z 7II and Z 6II, it is possible to prevent the focus point from unintentionally moving to the background in Auto-area AF mode, so that photographers can more easily focus on the closer subject when AF starts. This firmware update also supports the ML-L7 Remote Control, which allows you to take photos when away from the camera, facilitating the taking of selfies from a distance where you cannot reach the shutter-release button, and nightscapes which are likely to cause camera shake when the button is pressed.”
