I was finally able to update my EM-1 to the new firmware 2.0 tonight. I checked it earlier and it was not there but I just looked for it again and to my surprise it was there waiting on me.... Everything updated just fine but it did remove all of my settings. Well, I guess we can't have everything.

Can anyone with the new update please let me know if the slow evf/screen refresh rate has been fixed during the use of manual focus with peaking? Is it now similar to panasonic, and sony's implementation?
Thanks.

Yes peaking is now usable, slight drop in frame rate compared to normal live view but much, much better.

Thought about making another thread on this, but I think this is a good place for it too.

I've noticed a couple undocumented features of v2.0 firmware, but I'm senile so I could just be forgetting that things worked this way before. Here's what I've noticed:

- In C-AF the black outline of the selected AF point remains after it acquires initial lock.

- With the 12-40mm it now indicates the current focal length on the screen/EVF when you change the zoom or focus.

Anybody notice anything else interesting in the new firmware?

I'm sure the focal length for lens including 4/3s was displayed, the difference i've noticed is the zoom ring direction is now displayed above the length.

Is that what's different? All I could figure was that that area of the screen looked different so I thought it was the display of the mm, period. That arrow does look different.

Really? Do I understand correctly ... after the firmware update all user customizations are lost? Back to factory default settings like a new camera?
Indeed. That thing we always complain about where there's no way to save our settings externally... it bit me in the butt. I'm still trying to remember all of my settings.

It did reset the custom settings and now I can't get the full display when I press the shutter halfway after using magnify. I went through the menu several times and I can't find where the option is to reset Magnify with halfway press.

The focal length was actually displayed before ver. 2, depending on your selected info on screen

Olympus does give that warning, but you've got to look at the update details first before updating if you want to know all that will change & one thing that will definitely change are the user settings (except lens AF adjustment data). http://dl01.olympus-imaging.com/ww/ud2/ENU/0001/1090/index20a.html

[ Caution ]
When the firmware is updated to version 2.0, settings other than AF Focus adjustments are reset.
Sorry, but I like to quote that little joke;

If all else fails, read the instructions!
:biggrin:

Thanks for letting me know.

In that case, the first item on the list of firmware improvements should have been:
- new feature to allow export and import of saved user settings.

That should be fundamental on a camera with so many customization options.

The EVF lag when on CAF and half pressed for focusing is still there and probably worse than before. It does not look like this was fixed. I can't recall how the EVF lag was when peaking was on before the update so can't comment on that.

With the new update, during manual focus with focus peaking, does the screens exposure/ illumination still kinda dim down a little and almost look like a black and white image?
Thanks.
