    This is great that Olympus is finally listening and trying to keep current customers happy through their updates.

    Now, where can I put in a suggestion for MySets on the mode dial for the E-M5?

    If you find out, let me know! I think this is a major omission in the latest e-m5 upgrade.

    I just installed it, and can confirm the new firmware introduces full manual control of the shooting. Awesome! Time Bulb and Live Bulb are even here and operate the same as on the camera, updating the view on my phone every nth-second.

    Wow , that's great news. This is really a superb feature for long exposures with ND filters or for Astro work. I must admit these two firmware upgrades on the E-M5 and E-P5 are great developments and have changed my perception of Oly as a "no upgrades" company.

    Anyone know if the intervalometer is still limited to 99 frames?

    Just installed it. It works just fine. Marvelous, wonderful - I want to kiss someone at Olympus (ok, give an hour and I'll have calmed down!!).

    Great news! But i was also really crossing my fingers that Oly would update video bitrate from 19mb to 24mb, to the same level as E-M1 and E-M10. Currently E-P5 looks even worse than
    E-M5. My option is to sell E-P5 and get the E-M10, but i prefer the pens form factor.

    Well my four minutes of stark terror are over and it updated successfully.

    I've updated my cameras and lenses may times over the last couple of years without a problem, but I still have to screw up my courage every time I play the Olympus version of Russian Roulette.

    It's an extremely worthwhile firmware update. Works well and adds some really useful functionality.

    Kudos Olympus!
