That firmware is also available for the first MSC version. The only difference is that you have to use the firmware updater rather than getting it shipped like that...
So then the only real difference that remains is the textured grip on the zoom and focus rings, and the decorative ring to the bayonet when the lens hood is not being used.
Neither...oops, I meant either.
Separate names with a comma.
