I know this is opening an old thread but some may have missed it as it is not on the Olympus website.
I updated my new E-5 today at the same time I though I would check my lens. I found new firmware for 12-60, 50-200 & 9-18. Atleast two at to solve sequence shooting with E-3 E-5

Worth checking your lens collection
