I've just updated my EM-1 with it (still a nerve wracking business) and the camera is still working. I won't be able to check out any improvements until later today

Available via the USB plug with the latest Downloader installed on you PC / MAC

Seemed to take about 5 minutes to downlaod

Yep, we weren't the only ones having problems, I just hope that this update will have sorted them

Open the Olympus updater....connect camera via usb and switch on....rear screen should be live and show USB with various options ...make sure "storage' is selected, and then press ok...then carry on as instructed.

Latest Firmware update is NOT available until 24th February. Currently the E-M1 is on 2.2 and version 3.0 will be the next release on the 24th. It brings faster continuos shooting under C-AF.

Yes Bri I had. I was reminding everyone of my earlier thread that has now fell down the list that the latest firmware release is imminent.

Outside4me appears to be trying to update from an earlier update - likely the November 2.2 update.

Yes, bought the camera a few months ago and was having trouble writing to card from time to time. Sure hope this fixes it!

I am really considerating getting an EM1 and an adapter for my 4/3 lenses next year once my legs are sorted out seems to be the one to go for, rather than the EM5 MK2.
Its the extra focus points that sell it to me right now.
