Sony has posted a firmware update for its Nex compact cameras.

The patch, available now from Sony's support site, gives the Nex-3 and Nex-5 the ability to automatically focus any one of 14 lenses designed for the company's Alpha digital SLRs and connected by the Nex cameras' E-mount to A-mount adaptor.
