As you know Olympus temporarily suspended the firmware updated version 1.2 download (See Olympus America).
Just got that news from an anonymous source: “E-M5 firmware version 1.2 had been finalized and is ready for use in cameras.” Olympus now started the testing period. If all works fine the firmware update could be released in October. One of the bug that will be fixed is the “not recognizing” of some lenses.
And our friend Tyson Robichaud (Click here) wrote a long fw update wishlist. I agree on all points and Olympus should read the full article 🙂
There is a $80 gift card deal on all Olympus cameras (Click here to see the detailed deal page on Amazon).
There is the official CS-36FBC Olympus case. A leather half case from Hong Kong. A full leather case with strap from Cina. Than we have half cases from two well known producers, Zelenpol, Kaza and Gariz.
E-M5 Batteries, and other things:
The Olympus GS-4 strap and the DSTE E-M5 batteries you have to use with an extra charger. There is an E-M5 car charger a new E-M5 LCD screen and a Front Cover+ Top Panel.
