    Hi, I finally got the 25mm/1.4 today, and wanted to update my E-M5 and the lens. Unfortunately the software seems stuck at "Connecting to server" and returns an error saying it cannot connect. My internet is working fine though.
    I tried to
    turn on and off windows7 firewall
    tried it on my MacBook Pro running Maverick, tried over my phones 3G connection acting as a hotspot for my laptop
    tried to plug the PC directly into the modem same with MBP
    rebooted PC
    ran some critical Windows updates.
    I have administration rights on both the windows PC and the MacBook.
    Nothing helped, neither Viewer 3 1.1 nor Camera Updater are able to connect to Oly's servers it seems.
    Are they maybe down/ clogged right now?

    You are right. First try today in the morning let me update. Weird
    Anyway, seems that those servers really are under a heavy load sometimes.

    I don't think there has been a firmware update for PL25 (H-X025) since release...

    No, there is not. I thought there was what with rattlesnaking and all. I updated the body to 1.7 though. Somehow missed that
