Stability of operation when using SD card (UHS-II) has been improved.

Well, today is a day of disappointments from Olympus...

Update completed and it does save and restore your mysets.
All seems OK.

Re: E-M1 II Firmware Upgrade 2.3

Does not sound very exciting, but presumably it is important enough to issue a firmware update......

Re: E-M1 II Firmware Upgrade 2.3

Updated successfully, but not without issue.

I connected the camera to the pooter, with the Oly cable. This cable is only ever used to update the firmware. I take out the SD card to down load.....

I ran the updater software, which connected as expected, to be sure (!) I saved my settings. Then proceeded to update the firmware. The software came up with an error, "Camera not connected" or similar. Started over again, and successfully updated. After the Update, when the camera had OK on the screen, the same error came up, "Camera not connected"

Doubt it is the cable, and kinda doubt is the USB port on the pooter, so not sure what was going on.

Whatever the cause, the camera is updated and working as expected. I took the time to check the Pany 100-400, and the Oly 40-150 Pro. They were all up date.....

Why did you take out the SD card ?

Re: E-M1 II Firmware Upgrade 2.3

No, to update I did not take the SD card out. Only when downloading photos.

My point was that the cable only ever gets used once in a blue (Red!!) moon...., thus unlikely to be damaged......

Probably just dirty contacts then. Worked glitch free for me.

I always remove the memory card from my camera before updating. Olympus recommend this in their instructions for preparing to update:

Re: E-M1 II Firmware Upgrade 2.3

Sounds like an underwhelming FW upgrade. I want all the EM1X features available in my EM1.2, at no cost
