Today Olympus is pleased to announce firmware updates for the Olympus E-P1 and the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 and M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 17mm F2.8 lenses to improve focusing performance.
The firmware update 1.1 for the Olympus E-P1 will improve the camera’s continuous AF (C-AF) operation. Both lenses – the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 and the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 17mm 1:2.8 Pancake – will benefit from the firmware update to version 1.1 with enhanced autofocus performance.
To download and install this firmware update, simply open the Olympus Master software, connect the camera via USB to the computer and log onto the internet. Choose the Update Camera function from the Online Service menu in the Olympus Master software and the update will commence immediately.
The ability to update the firmware of 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.
