    Now why is that do we think.

    I've searched everywhere, cant find it.

    The latest one listed is V1.1..... Olympus - Firmware Updates

    Dave, do you have the camera updater program installed on your PC? I've been using that for firmware updates

    Hi everyone. Is a PC still the only way to update the OM-D? I've got a Mac and remember reading you couldn't update the firmware from anything but a PC.

    It does work on a Mac, no problem. Just follow the instructions, it's very easy, but the update takes about 10 minutes.

    Definitely updates on a Mac no problem (unless you're running an older OS of course)

    I charged the battery to my second E-M5 body and added my grip with my spare battery to it and it updated with no problem connected to my Pc. I thought that I just might not have good luck on updating my second body but it updated just perfect, just like my other E-M5 body. Now, I wish that there was a way to move my settings from one body to the other without having to reset each one by hand.

    Was the 1.2 update ever on the UK site? Should always use the Japanese/head office link for the mose reliable information. The US site for instance had announced its availability before it was even released.

    Anyway, you can use the updater software at any time to check for updates.

    It worked for me but the instructions were not exactly transparent. It wouldn't recognize my camera until I selected storage from the LCD and clicked OK. Then I was able to install without problem. I'm running the latest version of Lion.

    I agree on the not so obvious upgrade instruction. If I didn't read this forum, I think I would make the same mistake by clicking the next button without reading the complete instruction and checking the camera screen.
