Firmware updates for lenses are not all too common, but when they do arise they are welcomed by the community as they often fix ease-of-use issues and improve performance.  

Nikon's new firmware update is for the Nikkor Z DX 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 VR lens, and will be the first since it was released back in 2022. The APS-C superzoom covers a wide focal range and has received positive reviews when coupled with the Nikon Z50 and the Nikon Z fc. The new update fixes a rare but important issue that occurs when recording video.
