firmware update

I found this on dpreview. It looks like good news for legacy lens users with an E3 or E510.

Re: firmware update

Seems to work too. For the first time, I've managed to get something resembling usable results with my OM-fit Sirius 500mm. Managed to resolve the patterns/marks on the brickwork on the house across the street @ ISO1600 handheld. Not sure I'd want to subject anyone else to them, but at least I feel justified in having kept it! Now, if only they'd implement FC as well...

Re: firmware update

I am using an old Clubman 28mm F2.8 1:5 macro lens with a cheap ebay OM to 4/3rds adapter. The whole thing cost me less than £30.

Prior to the V1.3 upgrade, I could only use it with a tripod. Now it works very well.

I have added a sample image of an apple to my gallery
