    Any ideas on what "MF shooting operations have been improved" translates to?

    Perhaps they adjusted the gain rates between the focus by wire turns and the change of focus based on focus distance. It can be difficult to hit critical focus at macro distances if the response is too fast to a small rotation. As an Engineer, that's what I would do...

    That sounds most likely, it does feel more natural now.

    Thanks! I just plugged my E-P5 camera (with the 60 macro attached) into my computers USB port and ran the 'Olympus Camera Updater' and that program saw the 60 macro in the firmware list with the new 1.1 firmware highlighted. Just click OK and in 2 minutes my lens firmware is updated. Easy-peezy!

    The Olympus 45 and 75 also both have an upgrade to V1.1 available...
