Thanks for check it out for me Brian, I thought mine has a problems, also 1 guy from dpreview said that his camera has a feature that ask if we want to update the firmware or not, but I can't find on mine too. You posted a very sharp photos Brian with the PL 14-150, what an expensive lens.
Actually this solves another problem too.
The procedure described on p. 60 for close-up playback doesn't work unless mode2 is enabled. I was desperately looking for a way to compare two images zoomed in. The modes are described on p. 74. Although ... described is the wrong word here. I would dearly love to stuff this so called manual down various people's throats at Olympus.
