Leica Releases Firmware v2.0.2.5 for M/M-P

Leica today has finally released the v2.0.2.5 firmware that made a brief appearance - but quickly disappeared recently. The whopping list of improvements include a new menu item and some bugfixes for freezes occurring during the use of Live View or Video modes.

The list of improvements in this release:

  • New Menu item “Flash exposure compensation” to adjust flash exposure with the Leica SF 26 flash unit (only active when SF 26 is attached).
    This new function requires Firmware 1.1 on the SF 26 Flash.

  • Several firmware bugs that caused occasional camera hang up when using Live View or Video function have been fixed.
