Today it’s firmware update party! Also Olympus announced a new Olympus E-5 firmware: “Firmware version 1.2 ensures the movement of the dial on the optional HLD-4 battery grip matches the movement of the selected AF point.“. You need the Olympus Digital Camera Updater software to upgrade the E-5: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_downloads_updater.asp
