    Other than the good news about Olympus' financial state, has anyone heard of this update? Anyone tried it?

    What, the new Olympus OM-D5 with Sony sensor? Yeah, I tried one today and it works great with the new Panasonic 12-35mm f2.8. I'll post some pictures later! :rofl:

    I use the EPM1 and 14mm Panasonic lens. THe rattlesnake is there sometimes in doors.
    but it only appears when there is strong light around. ( may be twice or three times in 2 months)

    I have use the panasonic 14mm with EPM1 on a recent trip overseas for 2 months. I didnt really notice it out doors.

    I know you're fibbing. My copy of the 12-35 is a constant f2.0. My 35-100, however, is only f2.8. :biggrin:

    :wink:

    I did the update for the EP3. still makes noise on the m4/3 PL25 and the 4/3 OLY 50mm macro. i was testing out my 4/3 50-200 non-swd and it did not make noise that i could hear.
