It's very odd they only provide a Windows version of the update, and no mention of Mac download.

It does work with Windows 10. Update does - not - wipe out all current settings (thank goodness, didn't think about it until half-way thru).
Whole process is  s-l-o-w  as molasses. Cryptic, opaque Menus remain... the camera is and remains a major challenge to setup.

No issues with this update at all. I would give it the green light.

They still don't support the latest OS for Mac yet. I decided to try it on my new machine twice, and the same sequence of failures occurred as soon as I launched it. First I got a warning that my external drives were disconnected improperly, then communications with Bluetooth devices(keyboard and mouse) failed. I had to hold down the power button to do a restart to use the computer again. I tried it on a previous generation OS on an older machine, and it updated without issue.

I'm a Windows person, but I follow the Sony forum over on Fred Miranda and there is an extensive thread about getting Apple computers to play nice with the latest update. Here is a link to that discussion and what has worked for some Mac users (along with what has not worked). Perhaps there is some useful info there for you.

Thanks for the link. It really shows the limitations of their method of updating the firmware. Nikon and Canon do it the best way IMO. Copy the new file to a card and let the camera do it. Done.
