Firmware for 100-400 lens fixes focus limiter issue

Firmware for the Panasonic 100-400 lens:

2/Fixed the instability of Auto Focus when the focus switch set to [5m - ∞], using Olympus Imaging Corporation's OM-D E-M1 MarkII.

Updated mine to fix option 2 - the lens focus limiter now works fine on the EM1 MkII.

That's good news. I wonder if it also solves the panning issue when using the lens IS.

Does it allow the ProCap to work on the EM1.2?

No - that's still greyed out. I suspect it would need something to enable it from the Olympus side - if it was at all possible with any non-Olympus lenses. Not sure whether their are technical issues that are stopping this, or a marketing strategy!

It does not work for the fourthird lenses also. Think it's a marketing ploy. (Oly, Proof me wrong)

Apparently there are technical issues relating to the speed of the aperture mechanism. That is why you can't use ProCap at an aperture smaller than f/8. The old 4/3 lenses have mechanisms that are too slow.

Ideally Olympus would test all the Panasonic lenses and allow the ones that pass the test to be used.

It does seem unlikely thatall of the Oly lenses are ok, but none of the Pannys.
