They may even be up to 1.13 for EX1.
Too bad Sony makes it impossible to get these firmware upgrades. If not user updatable it should at least be possible to have your local authorized Sony service center (rather than their national centers) do them and it should be while you wait, not 3 weeks turnaround and a small fortune in shipping and insurance.
Not true about disabling SDHC.
The firmware updates since 1.11 have been bug fixes but Sony doesn't make these public . . . nor is the firmware readily available. Basically if you find an issue and call Sony about it and the firmware update fixes it, you can send in the camera and three weeks later (or some other overlong time) you'll get back the camera with updated firmware (as I understand the procedure).
Hmm, I could fly to the UK and back and have it done faster than driving 30 minutes to Park Ridge NJ to drop off the camera and wait 3 weeks. Well I could at least save the $100 and use it for the air fare. If I were to lose just a couple of shoots during those 3 weeks it actually would make sense to fly to the UK instead.
