Nikon's D4 & D800 1.01 Firmware Update Fixes Lockup Issue

Back in April we posted news from Nikon Rumors regarding lockup issues that affected the D800, D800E and D4. Good news. Nikon has released firmware update 1.01 which is said to have fixed that pesky little bug. Thanks again to Nikon Rumors for always keeping us in the know.

D800 Firmware Update B 1.01
When a still image was captured while viewing existing images in playback mode, the monitor turned off, the memory card access lamp glowed steadily, and, in some rare cases, the camera ceased to respond to operations. This issue has been resolved.
When the Wireless Transmitter WT-4 was used with certain settings applied, RAW images were also transferred whenWireless transmitter>Transfer settings>Send file as was set to JPEG only. This issue has been resolved.
A dark shadow sometimes appeared at the bottom edge of images captured with Active D-Lighting set to any option other than Off with Image area set to 5:4 (30x24). This issue has been resolved.

When an option that utilized the main command dial was selected for Custom Setting f15: Playback zoom, and an image was zoomed in or out with playback with certain settings applied, shooting shutter speed, aperture, and exposure compensation settings were sometimes changed. This issue has been resolved.

I had a D4 freeze up on me during the cake cutting....luckily I pulled the battery out in time to reset it but it was  pretty scary.  It's rare a camera does something I can't figure out in 2 seconds and this was def one of those times

Also D700 have firmware update.
