    I am getting my camera back after a few years away from home.
    Anyway, Roger, my friend did not do the firmware update.
    My question is this.....
    From my memory, the camera does Raw but with an attached jpeg.
    Did the update make it so just a raw file is made?
    This was the only thing on the camera I didn't like.

    The firmware update does not change the RAW (DNG) + JPG option. The camera has to create a JPG to be able to display the photo on the LCD in playback mode. You can change the size of the JPG in the setup menu.

    Ya know, I hated that about this camera. I found the write times somewhat slow and I think because it's writing 2 different files.
    I thought that this was supposed to change in the firmware update....
    Oh's still a great camera and I'm excited to get it back...

    Thanks for the reply....

    I find it a royal PITA, to be honest.
