The newly released Leica M8 firmware update 2.002 adds detection of 6-bit coding for new M lenses including; LEICA SUMMILUX-M 21mm/f1.4 ASPH, LEICA SUMMILUX-M 24mm/f1.4 ASPH. and LEICA ELMAR-M 24mm/f3.8 ASPH. The update also fixes certain bugs:
a. If LEICA M8.2 cameras are set to the "Discreet" option and to single exposures, an unintended "black image" may have occurred when the finger was not completely lifted from shutter release button before pressing it down again for the next shot. (Not valid for LEICA M8 Cameras)
b. Setting "AUTO-ISO" in combination with lens dependent setting of the slowest shutter speed: the camera will switch to the higher ISO when the shutter speed corresponding to "1/focal length" is reached (was 1/focal length + 1 f-stop).
c. Correct display of image numbering.
d. Correct display of the fastest sync speed in the menu (1/180s on upgraded M8 and M8.2, 1/250s on M8).
