Firmware Update for M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO

Users of the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO will find that Olympus have updated the firmware to v1.1.

This is said to give:
- Improved noise reduction of sequential shooting while the lens's IS is on when using an E-M1 Mark II.
- Improved performance of synchro image stabilization while using the E-M1 or E-M5 Mark II.

I'm finding this lens is fixed to my E-M1 most of the time now - unless I need the extra speed of my 15mm f1.7, or the reach of my telephoto lenses! Its extra weight over my 12-40 f2.8 have proved not to be an issue.

Did mine a few days ago, but haven't tried it out yet.

I updated mine at the same time as the E-M1ii. Not noticed any difference TBH.

I do find it a hunk around town and I'll be keeping the 12-35, but on my recent trip to the Outer Hebrides it really proved it's worth. There was a lot of wind, sand and sea-spray, and for landscape shooting from wide to tele without having to change lenses it was both capable and reassuring.
