    Just found out that Panasonic just came out with a firmware 1.1 update for the 12-35mm lens today, in case some of you haven't noticed :thumbup:

    It may also improve AF on the OM-D, since it's an update to take advantage of the 240fps sensor readout of the GH3, but the OM-D also has 240fps sensor readout.

    It probably will help on the OMD then. It sounds like a faster communication update, like using firmware to make an MSC lens match the speed of an MSC R lens.

    Ok. I found the stupid non standard Olympus USB cable and did the firmware update. Not sure if it's faster on the E-M5 or not. It could be... I think it might be.... I'm not so sure....

    It's not like the 12-35 was slow before the update.

    Is it safe to update using Olympus body?

    I just updated mine on my E-M5. Supposed to focus faster, but I don't really notice any difference. Like others have said, it was no slacker to begin with in terms of AF speed...

    I need to d/l and install - I wonder if they've fixed the not-so-smooth constant aperture mode?
