    i upgraded the firmware on my E-P3 and Panasonic 14mm to versions 1.1. All ok with body, but now it doesn't recognise the lens at all. The Oly firmware update software doesn't see the lens either.

    Any wise people out there know how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance.

    I just did this on my E-PM1, upgraded the body, then the 14mm. Worked just fine, it's now showing 1.1 on both. Had i known lots of people get this error thought I probably wouldn't have taken the risk since i bought the lens on Ebay. Firmware didn't do much for the noice while filming either.. :(
