Downloaded about an hour ago. Firmware v1.2 loaded without problems. None of my settings were lost.

1 - Magnification assist on the AE/AF Lock button (joystick) works for M and R lenses, otherwise AE/AF Lock button configuration is as before for the SL 24-90. This makes perfect sense AFAIC. AE-Lock with manual lenses is via the shutter release half-press only, which makes sense to me since the button press wasn't a toggle anyway.
2,3,4 - Time will tell whether these makes a difference to me. I've not had any problems with ISO 50-400 quality, I haven't used the L-Log curve (or video) at all so far, and I'm not sure I see much difference in the viewfinder.
5 - The EXIF data for my R lenses has all been correct with fw1.1, and the lens code processing has worked just fine. That includes
11225 Elmarit-R 19mm f/2.8 v1 3cam
11221 Elmarit-R 24mm f/2.8 3cam
11115 Summicron-R 35mm f/2 v2 3cam
11675 - 11776 - 11777 - 11875 Summilux-R 50mm f/1.4 3cam
11228 Summicron-R 50mm f/2 1cam
11212 Macro-Elmarit-R 60mm f/2.8 3cam
11219 - 11254 Summicron-R 90mm f/2 3cam
11111 Elmarit-R 135mm f/2.8 3cam
11919 Elmarit-R 180mm f/2.8 v1 2cam
11922 Elmar-R 180mm f/4 3cam
11920 Telyt-R 250mm f/4 3cam
to date. It will take me some time to check and see that FW1.2 didn't change anything there.
6 - I'll have to check whether WiFi via my home network works correctly yet. Perhaps this evening. Last time I tried to use it, I was not able to find the SL on the network even though it seemed to be connected. Using the SL as a hotspot has worked without any problems.
Presumably there are some other fixes, etc, that whomever authorized the release notes didn't deem to be significant enough to remark about. I'll see how the camera works going forward. Otherwise, I'm good with it; it's not really a very big deal.
