Oly M-1 File Format Setting/Adjustment Question...

I've been trying to figure out why my file format (.jpg/RAW) settings seemed to change mid-way through a couple of shoots last week. I wanted RAW when I got just .jpg...

Here's something I just tested..

'camera menu' = setting it via the camera menu, the '<*' icon just below 'Picture Mode'
'EVF menu' = setting it via holding down my assigned 'RAW<*' button (F2) and changing the dial to choose what is displayed on-screen

1. I had the 'camera menu' set for LN+RAW, when I checked the settings in the EVF by holding down my RAW format button and moving the dial one click, on-screen it appeared to be set for LN (basically, it was not in the .jpg+RAW area). However, the picture came out LN+RAW.

2. I then changed my camera menu to LN, and moved the 'EVF menu' to LN+RAW. The picture came out LN (no RAW).

I just upgraded to firmware 1.4 last night. It would appear that the camera ignores the settings you make via the 'EVF menu', in favor of what you set via the 'camera menu'.

Anyone else see this? Am I doing something wrong?
