Olympus Lens Update Available

Firmware Upgrade For Micro Four Thirds System

Today Olympus announces a firmware update for the following five Zuiko Digital Lenses:

>> Zuiko Digital 28-84mm equivalent (ED 14-42mm Four Thirds) f3.5-f5.6 lens;
>> Zuiko Digital 80-300mm equivalent (ED 40-150mm Four Thirds) f4.0-f5.6 lens;
>> Zuiko Digital 50mm equivalent (ED 25mm Four Thirds) f2.8 lens;
>> Zuiko Digital 70-200mm equivalent (ED 35-100mm Four Thirds) f2.0 lens;
>> Zuiko Digital 70mm equivalent Macro (35mm Four Thirds) f3.5 lens.

This firmware update will ensure the compatibility of these lenses when used with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 camera.

The ability to update the firmware in E-System components -- bodies, lenses, flash units -- is one of the key advantages of a 100% digital design. Firmware updates are available through Olympus Master and Olympus Studio software applications.

The firmware can be updated through Olympus Master software.
