◎Updating the lens firmware
After starting, the TAP-in Utility automatically checks to see whether a more up-to-date firmware version exists for the lens connected to the Console. If it does, the following screen will be displayed.
If you want to update the firmware, click the "OK" button. If not, click the "Cancel" button. If you select "OK", the update will start. Please continue updating according to the prompts in the dialog box.
Even if no update is indicated on the dialog screen, you can still run the program by clicking the Firmware Update button on the main screen.
When the lens firmware is updated, the customized data on the lens is canceled and reverts to factory default mode. If any setup has been customized for the lens, please read the customized data from the lens and save it on the computer in advance. After updating, write the customized data again onto the lens.
