Re: EM-1 firmaware 1.1 out

I did my update the other day I don't like the process either.
The system employed by Nikon and maybe others is much safer. The update is downloaded to your PC/MAC which you transfer to a blank SDHC memory card which is then fitted into the camera. The firmware update is then uploaded from the card. Therefore there is no risk of bricking your camera due to a dropped internet connection or power cut.
I'm sure it wouldn't be to hard for Oly to adopt the same method.
