    I still haven't updated, so thanks for reminding me I still need to do it some time (I'm in no rush)

    I am considering updating the FW to 4.0 and was wondering if this was still the case. Anything else beyond the usual precautions that I need to be aware of?

    Some people have claimed that they are getting blurred images because of the updates with the stacked focus mode and IBIS. I have not found this to be the case in either the EM1 or the EM5 Mk II. Other than that, I find it to be a worth while update.

    Hi, All updates between major versions will reset all settings on all Olympus bodies.
    There is a spreadsheet at biofos.com for saving your O-MD settings.

    My E-M1 currently has FW 3 and I have the v.2 spreadsheet from that update. I was able to download the v.4 spreadsheet, but would like one for v.3 if it exists. I need to search a bit more at their site to see.

    It takes all of 5 minutes to write down your settings by going through the menu. You then download 4.0 and reset everything. All it takes is a little planning (pen, paper, make sure the camera battery is fully charged) and possibly 20-30 minutes of your time - no big deal. Besides, we're all gearheads or we wouldn't even care about such esoteric things as firmware updates. It's fun to explore the new capabilities!

    +1 the above. It is worth the time to write down your settings so they can be quickly restored. It is rather a long update so a fresh battery charge is wise. You won't need it all but it doesn't hurt to be safe.
