    Just tried to download the latest firmware for my G3 and a couple of lenses but the site is just not working.

    All I get is.....
    Unable to open this internet site.
    The requested site is either unavailable or cannon be found.

    The Panny site opens but it will not download.
    Joint update service for Four Thirds body and lenses | Download | Digital Camera | Digital AV | Consumer Products | Support | Panasonic Global

    Anyone had this before?

    UPDATE...The new firmware still cannot be downloaded onto my PC, but it can on my wife's laptop.
    New firmware successfully installed.

    It worked for me when the update first came out, I just tried it again and it still works on my computer.

    Maybe get someone else to download the files and send them to you? The camera files are a little too big to email but the lens files are small enough.

    What does the update provide? Did I read somewhere that it made the camera reject third party batteries? If that's all it offers.......

    dunno about 3rd party compatibility
