Re: New Firmware

Yep - in-camera focus stacking is the big functional change. For the record, the update was perfectly smooth and straightforward on my W10 box. Settings were saved and restored.

I'm surprised they could find the bits to update.

Re: New Firmware

That's nice to have focus stacking on Em5ii. I thought before they told us the camera wasn't capable and now a few years down the line it is?

I appreciate there is always going to be a bit of letting older models get obsolete and not update them, but some of these features like a new art mode can't be that difficult to add to most cameras?
