This already is the prove that the big difference canīt be the firmware alone and other variables must have changed between shot "OLD" and "NEW" as well.
The difference in the first crop might be the firmware alone, but of course seeing the second crop makes me doubt that this is the case.
Are this both crops from the same Image? If yes then most likely some of the difference in crop 1 is due to something else as well.
In crop one it is also clear that the "NEW" shot is taken quite a bit closer to the subject, which alone can be enough for this difference.
Crop 2 is the opposite here the "OLD" crop is quite a bit closer. Depending where the focus-point was this could be most of the difference as well, because depth of field gets narrower if you get closer to your subject.
What Iīm trying to say is, there is far to much changing between these shots to get any useful conclusion.
