    I simply cannot figure this out. I go on Panasonic's page to download the version 1.3 for the 14-140mm lens and I always get the same message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" and I've never been able to get to download the update. I tried on 3 differenet computers one with XP and 2 that have Win7.
    Here is the link! Can anyone figure this out?

    Their link is badly broken ; not your fault, the url displays an interesting mix of badly handled cut'n'pastes.

    The ftp repository is at ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/pub/Panasonic/

    Been digging this further, and found it finally :

    Latest fw for your lens is :

    ftp://ftp.panasonic.com:/pub/Panasonic/call_center/firmware/DSC/H-VS014140/OTHERS/ES100314.lin

    ISTM that this file is for v. 1.4 ; if you really need v. 1.3 (older), link is :

    ftp://ftp.panasonic.com:/pub/Panasonic/call_center/firmware/DSC/H-VS014140/OTHERS/ES100313.lin

    I d/l'ed v. 1.4, so I can mail it to you if need be;

    IMHO, their whole ftp site is a mess.
