D3 Firmware Upgrade 2.0

I am having problems with the upgrade.

My camera now acts very slow thinking about what it just focused on.

The focus seems just as fast, but it lingers for a half a second (seems like 20 seconds) before it fires.

If I have it on machine gun, it just pauses before the first shutter release, then throws led just like it did before.

I used the camera all day Saturday at two zoos and it was fine. I did the upgrade today and ever after it is one slow duck.

Any suggestions of what I might be doing wrong would be greatly appreciated.

I thought we needed to post at Photo Camel or DPR to get made fun of? lol

O well.

Further on in the sage of the D3 Firmware Upgrade: I am testing the camera now with the lens I used a lot at the zoos on Saturday, a 70-300mm VR. Maybe I am just expecting too much? Maybe nothing is different? It just seems to pause before every shot.

I wonder if I changed something else in the camera? I am better off not fussing with stuff. lol

gary...
i really did test the camera VERY LITTLE after the upgrade
the focus seemed fine
the AWB seemed "awesomely" different

i will have a lot more time when my almost 2-week vacation starts in 38 hours
we'll have to see

i'm still not sure why your D3 is acting this way

what other lens(es) did you try?

Gary,

What setting are you using for focus tracking (off, low, norm, long)? Perhaps that has an effect. Otherwise having VR on may also cause a slight delay, have you tried 'non-VR' lenses or turning the VR off (I'm guessing you have)?

Just a couple thoughts...

Tried both VR lenses and non-VR lenses. I will check those settings, but I do not think I changed those.
