  1. Since I don’t use the VF4 on my E-M5 I’m not particularly interested in this specific firmware update. On a more general note, what is everybody’s experience with updating their E-M5 firmware? I haven’t done it so far (still on 1.2), but the procedure has been reported as “dodgy” earlier on. Thoughts anyone?

  2. I have never had any problems.
    I use the supplied Camera Updater program supplied on the OEM CD.
    You must have lens on the camera,

    Full Battery.
    Plug in USB/Camera cord with camera.
    Turn on camera
    Run program
    Choose Update version and Agree statement
    Choose “UPDATE” button.
    WAIT UNTIL LCD SAYS “OK” YOU MUST WAIT!!!!!!
    Unplug USB from CAMERA
    TURN OFF CAMERA NOW. AFTER YOU UNPLUG THE USB!!!

    If you don’t plan to get the VF4 (great for waist level low angle shots where the LCD may not be easy to see in bright light)., then you don’t need it. V1.6 has some updates for the E-M5 though. you will need to Olympus site for details.
