    had an issue after 2.00 update where a7iii would lock up (lit, black screen, red busy light solid). was shooting in simul write to 2 cards. after 5th time I tried single write to slot 1, and was able to finish my shoot. SD’s not issue, and after trying simul write again, the issue didn’t persist. only thing I can think of is settings went corrupt (invalidated, etc) after update. and I didn’t go to the card priority settings post update to verify settings.

    called up the Sony’s and escalated to engineering, should get a response tomorrow.

    Since the latest update the A7M3 is rejecting the Patona batteries I used without problems for the last three month. Great…
