IMPORTANT: To users of the Nikon 1 V2

To update 1 NIKKOR lens or Mount Adapter firmware using the Nikon 1 V2, please be sure to update Nikon 1 V2 firmware to A and B firmware Ver. 1.10 or later first.
Do not use a Nikon 1 V2 running A and B firmware Ver. 1.00 to update 1 NIKKOR lens or Mount Adapter firmware. As the lens or Mount Adapter firmware will not be accurately upgraded. Attempting to do so will result in problems with 1 NIKKOR lenses and the Mount Adapter that prevent their use.
