    Does the firmware update overwrite all of your camera settings i.e MySet1, 2 etc? I've just got it all set up nicely.

    I do not know about MySets (as I do not use them) but button assignments, etc. are not overwritten. So my guess with MySets is 'no' as well.

    OK thanks. I suppose there is only one way to find out, I'll have to give it a go.

    I only have one myset (for the cartoon focus peaking trick) and it's still there after the 1.6 FW upgrade.

    "It depends"...most firmware upgrades don't require a reset to factory default, so the MySets are safe, but I had ONE in the past that did do a factory reset, but that was years ago with an early 4/3 camera.

    Just thought I would report that after the update the settings were all untouched and were just as I had set them. :thumbup:
