    The firmware updater for olympus is terrible.... I would get a hold of olympus tech support.

    With a Panasonic body - I think that's the only option if you don't want to use the Olympus updater again. When you updated the first lens did you encounter any issues during the process or was it just that it didn't work afterwards?
