control lens data. If you are not confident that you can perform the update successfully,
the update can be performed by a Nikon-authorized service representative. See the camera

the update. Do not turn the camera off, remove or disconnect the power source, or operate
camera controls during the update. If the update is not completed successfully and the
camera becomes inoperable, take the camera to a Nikon-authorized service representative
for inspection.
