    Olympus just posted a firmware update for the M.Zuiko 9-18 mm. The new version 1.1 "resolves unstable exposure during sequential shooting when using C-AF on the E-M5". I don't have the E-M5 yet (hopefully by Thursday if *********** comes through). The 9-18 mm is my favorite architecture and landscape lens. I will therefore update to the new firmware via my G1 tonight.

    Please note that the link I provided will only work for updating the lens firmware via Panasonic body.

    Firmware update went fine using the G1 body. Now I only need to get the EM-5 to actually benefit from it!

    On the subject of this lens and being new to micro 4 thirds.

    Does using the 4 thirds model with the Olympus micro adapter make any difference to how the lens functions ?

    Thanks.

    Perhaps I don't understand your question, but the M.Zuiko 9-18 mm is a native m4/3 lens. So an adapter is not needed.

    There is a 9-18mm for Four Thirds and one for Micro Four Thirds.

    Thanks.

    Yes I am asking about the original Olympus 9-18mm 4 thirds.

    Does the lens still function the same with the Olympus micro 4 thirds adapter attached ?

    Yes. The lens won't focus as fast, but it's probably not that important for an UWA zoom.

    I'd guess yes (with the correct adapter) but I don't know as I never used it.
