I just updated my AX100 to Sony firmware release V3.00
I will test it sometime next month I hope.
The major updates Sony claims are an increase in the data rate from 60mbps to 100mbps and improved autofocus. When I put the camera into the 100mbps data rate setting it informed me stills are not available. Not a big deal to me...

Here's Sony's short list of the firmware V3.00 update contents:
What Does This Do?This utility updates the system firmware for Mac® and provides the following benefits:
Improvements over previous versions:
- Adds XAVC S 4K 100Mbps
- Adds capability to capture still pictures from video contents shot by XAVC S
- Improves trimming playback
- Improves auto focus performance
- Focus tracking performance on a person
After the update I switched to a new, blank SD card - there's no mention that there's any incompatibility between the old and new file formats, but I didn't want to take a chance on losing anything already on the previous card.
The new data rate definitely eats the card space quicker.
