    I just got my EM-1 a few days ago. (Loving it of course).

    I assume I can update from 1.1 to 2.2 directly (or latest firmware update)? I understand that all settings will be 'reset to default'?

    Thank you for confirming.

    (wow, Olympus have done an impressive job with providing updates and correcting or adjusting so many elements)

    I just did my wife's new E-M1, then saved all the settings from mine on the spread sheet available online (can't remember name off hand). Then after confirming hers was set properly and working I upgraded mine and then reset everything. It all went with no problems, but like you I was a little apprehensive to do it.

    I wonder if a silent electronic shutter will ever be available as an update. It can't be too difficult to implement right? I'm wondering if there are hardware limitations like heating or something. Oh well, I can only wish. :redface:

    The spreadsheet is on Biofos.com

    I guess I'd better upgrade my E-M1 as Santa is coming...
