    • onlyme

      I would like to know more about the third party lenses too please :)
      (oops, sorry for the double post)

  • lm

    Arghhh!! I hope I can get an update for 20mm F1.7 as soon as possible!!

    • Leiya

      Me too!! It’s too damn slow on my E-PL1!!!

      • Mr. Reeee

        Don’t blame the lens.

        • Leiya

          I know. But still, I find the Olympus 14-42 MSC and the Olympus 12mm f/2, and the Panasonic 14mm f/2.5, all focusing reasonably quickly on my E-PL1. Only the Panny 20mm f/1.7 focuses like a DSLR lens with a slow DC motor. I think I CAN blame the lens a little… :P

  • Leendert

    And the E-50 ;-)

  • Mar

    Admin, there was a new update for the E-5 as well.

  • Kaj

    Wondering if anyone can let me know which link is the firmware for the 100-300mm. I dont understand how theyve organised it

    • Jim

      If I am correct –

      I think you do not download indervidual FW for lenses – what you do (deffinatly with oly bodies) is attach the lens you want to update to your camera – then using the camera update software look for updates – your camera AND the attached lens will be updated tot eh latest version….

      Again if I am right –

      I belive you can update any panasonic lens with an oly body via the olympus software updater! and an oly lens with panasonics updater!

      And just to clarify – All m43 lenses correct for distortion on all m43 bodys.
      But only panasonic lenses on panasonic bodys correct for CA!… so far!

      Hey ADMIN Any roumours on Oly adding CA correction to lenses/bodys?? was a roumour ages ago about it!???

  • MP Burke

    Thanks for posting these links.

    • LGO

      Thanks indeed.

      The Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 is now considerably faster on the GH2 with the Version 1.1 firmware upgrade.

      I also check my other lenses and the 20mm f/1.7 is already Version 1.1 while the 14-140mm f/4-5.8 is already Version 1.4

  • Keith

    Great, so the better 14-45 isn’t getting improved!!!

    • Tommy

      I agree! why??@?!?!?!?!

  • Anyone tried it already?

  • frank

    the update is only for 4 lenses, the other updates have been released long, long ago

  • Keith

    Ah, the 14-45 doesn’t need a firmware update. It’s already ‘HD quality’ – I’ve just read the full article at dpreview (front page)

    • Tommy

      please can you post a link???
      what do you mean already hd quality?

  • Is it a good or a bad sign when I have three of the four lenses with new firmware?!

  • Tommy

    I don’t see the 7-14 and the 14-45 update on the japanese official website…is it still to be updated???

  • v74

    No 7-14 update !
