So my question to Ian is, am I deluding myself or did Oly take the opportunity to slip in an undocumented improvement?


It's not something I have noticed myself. Do you mean 1.2? I must confess I haven't upgraded to that yet as it's only supposed to enable the EC-20 converter to work and I don't have one yet. This does mean I'm in the position to do a before and after comparison
