Re: Firmware 1.2

I saw a post on the dpreview forum suggesting that it had also cured the banding problem experienced at high ISOs with the Lumix 20mm lens.

Re: Firmware 1.2

A crumb of comfort is that it doesn't reset your settings, as firmware updates used to do.

Stop press - Olympus requests not to update firmware until further notice.
