Nikon released new firmware updates for three mirrorless cameras (Z50/Z6/Z7):

Nikon Z50 firmware update version 2.30:

  • [Save focus position] and [Recall focus position] have been added to the roles that can be assigned using Custom Setting f2 [Custom controls (shooting)] in the [CUSTOM SETTING MENU]. As of October 20, 2022, these options were supported with the following lenses:
    • NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S
    • NIKKOR Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S
    • NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S
    • NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S
    • NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S
  • The behavior of autofocus during memory recall has been improved to ensure that the focus position will not change in any focus mode even if the shutter-release button is pressed halfway while focus recall is in progress.
  • During remote photography with the ML-L7, the camera will now focus with every shot taken with [AF-C] selected for [Focus mode] if [Release] is chosen for Custom Setting a1 [AF-C priority selection] in the [CUSTOM SETTING MENU].
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes resulted in the settings selected for Custom Setting f2 [Custom controls (shooting)] in the [CUSTOM SETTING MENU] not performing as expected in user settings modes.
