After finding out one of my other lenses had a firmware update, I started looking through my other lenses to see if any of them needed to be updated. Viltrox has a new update for V1 & V2 of their 85mm lenses for Sony E mount.

1. Optimize the problem of low power consumption during shutdown and sleep
2. Add the function that can be restored to the position before shutdown after restarting
