    I upgraded my wife's 14mm via her E-PL3. I cannot be sure this isn't psychological, especially since the speed didn't seem lacking before, but it sure seems very, very fast now.

    They claim C-AF during video is improved. I hope it's improved on Oly bodies too. I will do before and after tonight w/E-PM1 when I get home.

    I've updated the 14mm, 14-42mm and 100-300mm, but only have GF3 and G3 bodies, so cannot report anything for Olys.

    I just tried to update formware for Panny 14mm on E-PM1. The lens no longer works! I started another thread. E-PL2 doesn't recognize the lens either!!

    I only see updates for 4 lenses.

    7-14, 14-45, 45-200 aren't on on the firmware list on Panasonic's site.

    Unfortunately, the one lens that really needs it is not on the list ... 20/1.7

    Confusing Announcement?

    I got very excited only to find I don't actually have the lenses that really have been updated...... DPREVIEW mistake? or have I misread the article.
