    I have the OM-D and was using the Olympus updater programme to update the attached Panasonic 45-175 'X' lens to the latest firmware when my computer crashed.

    It seems like the firmware has been wiped from the lens such that my camera won't recognise the lens now.

    Reading up on it, it appears that to reinstate the firmware I will have to do it the Panasonic way and attach the lens to a Panasonic body and re-install the firmware from an inserted SD card. You cannot do this with an Oly camera.

    Hence my request for help!

    If you can help or know the solution, please can you contact me.

    If you have not already done so, I would encourage you to go to the Olympus site and download OV3.

    It is then worth attaching the lens in question and using the firmware update capability in OV3 to check current OMD formware (1.7) and also see what it offers for Pany lens.

    Good luck.
