The OM-D E-M5 and the Pen E-P3, E-P2, E-PL5, E-PL3, E-PL2, E-PL1, E-PM2 & E-PM1 all get firmware updates today - primarily to work with the new VF-4 viewfinder, although some cameras also get improved stability for their LCD screens.

Happy updating!! :)

Having the E-M5, I think I'll actually pass on this one unless someone finds something else that might be better in the 1.7 update besides the VF-4 use. I would like the newer AF algorithms of the E-P5 that is supposed to improve the AF speed with some 4/3's lens with anything else being unlikely, which would be kept for the next OM-D.

Well it didn't happen, no updated AF algorithms, 50-200mm 1.5 - 2 sec to focus, before and after update. But I'm one step closer to having a VF that locks to the camera.
