  • No update on the 14-50 f2.8-3.5 ?

    Bug or feature?

    After updating I discovered two… well… oddities.

    1. The Display changes its luminosity even when the Menu is shown depending on the light that goes into the lens.
    2. The Auto Review options are minimized to 3 and 5 sec. No off…. no hold… no zoom.

    Anybody else experiencing this?

  • GF1

    in my cam the “auto review” option doesn’t work anymore at all!!! It is simply greyed out in the menu!

  • GF1

    i was wrong! the cam was in burst mode!
    It still works.
