Zeiss ZX1 firmware update 1.4 released

Remember the $6,000 Zeiss ZX1 camera? Zeiss just released a new firmware update version 1.4 and for the ZX1 and the cool part is there is no need to download any files - the firmware update gets downloaded directly to your camera and you can continue to take pictures during the process. I wish other manufacturers adopt the same tech - or maybe they did already and I missed it? I know you can update the latest Nikon cameras from an app, but that is not really the same as having a directly connected camera. Here are the newly added features:

  • Autofocus with face detection
  • Full-res DNG rendering in Gallery mode
  • Adobe Lightroom (V6.2)
  • Support of the ZX1 Companion App for iOS and Android
  • Support for multiple recipients when sharing via link or email • Auto-completion for known email addresses
  • New languages: French, Italian and Spanish are supported

The full release notes can be found here: in English and in German.

Has anyone actually purchased the Zeiss ZX1? I know there are several reviews online, but they all seem to be loaners from Zeiss:
