    On the joint update page it says the PL 25mm firmware is 1.1.

    When I run the Olympus Digital Camera Update, it says my E-P3 has 1.4 and Lens is 1.0 and no new version.

    Also tried on my E-P2, same result for the lens.

    Anyone ran into the same problem?

    Does the 1.1 of the lens really make a different in term of AF noise?

    The entry I see on the Olympus update page reads:

    "LEICA D SUMMILUX 25mm / F1.4 ASPH ( L-X025 )"

    The Leica D Summilux is a four thirds lens and the heading just above that listing says "Firmware update for Panasonic Lenses ( Four Thirds )". The micro four thirds version is the Leica DG Summilux and it is not listed in the list of Panasonic micro four thirds lenses with updates available as there has been no update issued for it.

    I think you're simply not reading the headings on the groupings of lenses. All of the micro four thirds lenses with updates are Lumix lenses so the micro four thirds group of Panasonic lenses doesn't include a lens that starts with "Leica". On the other hand the only four thirds lens listed in the four thirds group is a Leica 25mm Summilux so it's an easy mistake to fall into, and in fact I made the same mistake myself for a while last year until someone pointed it out to me.
