    The problem "or possibly best part" of firmware updates is that there is undoubtedly other fixes in there as well. Those other fixes will stay undocumented because if they are documented it means the company has admitted a fault in whatever camera or lens it might be for. I love it when these updates state they correct wording in some other language that could only affect .001% of the population related to where you live. I have seen this one from Canon many times. I think the lawyers in the marketing department are in charge at this point but if it fixes some issue we have that they wont admit to then I don't really care.

    Question

    Is it advisable to always update? I haven't updated any of my lenses, or my bodies, since owning them.

    I recently updated and only use the 45 1.8 on an E-P3. I got the impression it focused slightly faster and was more sure-footed in low light. I also updated the E-P3 so I could use thew VF-4 EVF (otherwise the VF-4 is just a poor paperweight). So if you want added features, bug fixes or performance tweaks, updating is good. Otherwise, no need.

    Generally with Olympus and Panasonic I find updating is a good thing. But I usually wait a day or two for the early adopter to do some beta testing for me. Fuji updates are almost mandatory and Leica updates are best avoided. Canon and Nikon hardly ever offer them.

    I've also updated and with E-P5 I think I can see little bit faster and more secure focusing with 45 1.8 in low light.

    I like to keep everything I have as updated as possible, not just my camera and lenses, also my pc, os, mobile phone, etc... It's like an OCD :)

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but how do I update a lens? I have the 45mm 1.8, but I'm not sure how to update it.

    attach it to a camera and run the updater software (depends on the camera brand, not the lens brand).

    You need to have Olympus Digital Camera Updater software, downloadable from Olympus support pages.

    Then connect the camera to computer with 45mm attached to your camera. Then it is more or less self-explanatory with the on-line instructions of the updater software.
