Firmware updates have been increasing in frequency, with camera and lens manufacturers issuing fixes to issues that may have not been caught during production – but also enhancing the equipment with newly developed features. 

Nikon has recently stated in an interview that it plans on placing a higher degree of focus on firmware updates, and has acknowledged their importance in the photography community. True to its word, the best Nikon cameras have been regularly updated with new features as and when they arise, such as improved AF capabilities and higher-quality imagery with pixel shift functionality.
