Additional report of improvements!

AF in Continuous mode (which is accessible as a setting in the camera menu) is fully continuous which means it keeps focusing without any interaction.
The One Shot (focus lock) AF mode still requires you to push the Focus button on the front of the camera body.
This firmware update will demonstrate improvements in speed and smoothness of the Continuous Focusing. As well as improved very low light shooting, with a noticeable difference under properly lite environments.
