    Anyone else noticing a huge improvement with the firmware upgrade?

    Call me silly but the improvement can now be easily seen in the viewfinder.

    How do you upgrade lens firmware? What is the process?

    Check the wrench menu SETUP and go down until you reach VERSION DISP. and click right to see what the versions are. I bought a 45-200mm lens just last month from B&H and the firmware on the lens when I checked was 1.2. I went straight into the upgrade to 1.3 and never shot with the lens before the upgrade.

    Good guess is that the recently shipped lenses from Amazon and B&H will be also 1.2 if mine was.

    Yeah friend of mine told me bout this, he noticed the difference in the OIS, I done mine too, seems to be much more stable in the VF.

    My 45-200 is lightning fast now!
    Now we just need the same thing for the 20mm! It's probably twice as slow on my GF1.

    Firmware upgraded! I'm just amazed that these lenses can even be upgraded.
