It’s update time, my fellow NEX 5R users. Sony has just released firmware 1.03 for the NEX 5R/5T and NEX 6.
They also released a firmware update for the A7 and A7R.

For other countries, hop on over to Sony Alpha Rumors. They’ve got a comprehensive rundown of where you can download the said update.
The new treats this update brings to the table will depend on which NEX cam your updating. For NEX 5R users, here’s the change log for firmware 1.03:
Provides support for the following Fast Hybrid AF compliant and future compatible E mount lenses:
SELP18105G, SEL35F28Z, SEL55F18Z, SEL2470Z, SEL2870, SEL70200G
Note: For the following lenses, the Fast Hybrid AF is effective only in the central area of the frame. SEL35F28Z, SEL55F18Z, SEL2470Z, SEL2870, SEL70200G
So yeah, unless your using of the mentioned lenses, the need to update to this new firmware isn’t that great. Still, there’s no harm in doing so.
