    How long did it take you guys to complete the update?
    I've been stuck on the 'updating firmware' screen on my computer for a good while now. There is no progress bar (which would be nice and put my nerves at ease).
    My understanding is that once it has fully transferred from computer to camera , only then does the firmware itself start updating....
    It would also be nice if Olympus told us the actual size of the update file that is download etc....

    Time out. So Olympus is going to be supporting CA correction for some Panasonic lenses? In my eyes, that's big news. In fact, that's one of the main reasons I'd consider an EM-1 once I can afford it.

    I'm wondering why they'd choose this particular lens (P 14-140 3.5-5.6) to support that feature. I'm actually wondering if that means they are quietly supporting a lot of other Panasonic lenses already, and they are adding this relatively new one. Could be way off the mark with that, though.

    Does anyone have any idea about what has improved in the autofocus?

    Took me less than 10 minutes including the downloading period.
    The actual firmware update I reckons only about 3-4 minutes (from the camera LCD screen status)
