Re: PEN-F Update Firmware (v2.0)

It seems that Olympus have been able to reproduce the "freezing" problem introduced by firmware version 2 and that they are working on a fix. A user over on mu43 received a reply from Olympus support in America:

Pen-F Version 2.0 Firmware

Quote:
Dear Andrew,

Thank you for contacting Olympus Technical Support.

The latest is that the designers and engineers have recognized and identified the issue and are working on a resolution. This is a High priority support project and a corrective update will be available as soon as possible. Unfortunately we do not have a projected completion date at this point.

If you require additional assistance please reply to this email leaving the complete history intact.

Regards,
Bob

I am glad that I did not update right away as I would have done in the past!

Re: PEN-F Update Firmware (v2.0)

I had to return my Pen F to Olympus to sort out my issue with the firmware, took them a month to sort out but eventually Pen F returned with software correctly installed/fixed.

Funny the process speeded up when I bought an EM-1 Mark 2 ad registered for Pro service.

Re: PEN-F Update Firmware (v2.0)

Have owned my Pen F for under an hour- battery currently charging. So, best to hold off on software update for now?

Just make sure the battery is fully charged & follow the instructions without getting impatient & touching or turning off things. The full list of update details are here & will update the lot in one go. http://dl01.olympus-imaging.com/ww/u.../index21a.html

Instructions are here. http://cs.olympus-imaging.jp/en/supp...date_setbk.cfm

EDIT: I just noticed you're also an E-M1 Mk II owner, so you obviously know what to do already.

Re: PEN-F Update Firmware (v2.0)

I think there was an update to fix the issues so you should be ok!

Actually if you read the update details to me its not really essential to actually do it!
