Thumbs up A new Firmware update for several older models.

Don't get too excited but at least these updates do come through, even for the E-M5.

Re: A new Firmware update for several older models.

Looks like it's to fix incompatibility with the recent Panasonic lenses.

Re: A new Firmware update for several older models.

So on the E-M10ii these are the last 3 updates - as I don't own those Panasonic lenses I won't be updating and having to go back and reset my settings again.
But I appreciate the heads up - not least because I know what I would get if I ran the Camera Updater



Ver.1.3
(May.10 2018)
  • Corrected issue of autofocus (AF) function not operating correctly when using the "H-ES200" and "H-ES50200" interchangeable lens produced by Panasonic.
Ver.1.2
(Dec.01 2016)
  • Macro Flash STF-8 is supported.
  • Electronic Flash FL-900R is supported.
  • Improved stability of exposure when shooting videos.
Ver.1.1
(Jan.28 2016)
  • Compatible with Olympus lens with a built-in image stabilizing function.
    • * The camera body recognizes the IS built into the lens, allowing for optimal image stabilizing effects.
      • * Not compatible with 5 axis Sync IS.
    • * You can get the effects of rolling stabilization from the IS function of the body, along with the effects of image stabilization from the IS function of the lens.
