Sony has released a new firmware upgrade for the A6000. Don't expect to get auto eye focus for animals, but it does promise 'optimization' with some lenses that I have.

Good to see that Sony is still supporting the venerable A6000 even though they have three newer versions on the market.

Is it worth of the effort?

Sony also has some firmware updates for E-mount lenses. You should look for those also.

Quite frankly, unless there is some problem or issue I have experienced (or in this case if I had perhaps bought a newly supported lens) I am always leery of installing this type of update, especially when it is first released.

I had a Dell laptop crash after a BIOS update, and a Netgear router crash after a firmware update. In both cases the devices were recoverable, but with some considerable hassle.

So I for one would wait for a while to see if any issues arise before rushing to install this just-released software.
