    Those successfully updated to ver. 1.2 before will update to ver. 1.4, and have to do it again for update to ver. 1.5
    I did it already without any problem ......

    It's your opportunity to brick the camera now

    Great update, I only wish new AF from Pens (smaller boxes, touch screen AF in video) and they could work on their codec adding 25p/50i support for the rest of us
    Cheers,
    Marin

    The IBIS working sound is gone, now it does not work when the camera at idle, only works during half pressed shutter button. I think it saves the battery too.........

    Very much quieter generally, except for a faint farting sound when you half press the shutter button.

    Interesting. Should be able to get this done tonight.

    I recall the E-30 IS initially was quite noisy in live view but an FW update cured it. Nice to see they're still paying attention.

    I have noticed that switching from still to video mode quiets the E-M5 IS, but no idea why unless they're shutting down one of the axes of motion for video.

    Cheers,

    Rick

    Some people said that at movie mode, it only runs 2 axis IS instead of 5, however, I cannot find an official answer ...........

    Something like "that's for us to know, and you..."

    Went through the two-step update tango last night (1.2 -> 1.4 -> 1.5) and with the second step, the IS whir does disappear until one half-presses the shutter button. I wasn't terribly bugged by it but its absence is welcome. Perhaps it saves power as well.

    Will have to try the 20/1.7 to see whether they've tackled the high-ISO banding yet. Documentation is mute on this, so I presume there's no change.

    Cheers,

    Rick

    Did you all use MAC OS to do the update? The windows version doesn't seem to have 1.5 yet. Or does it work with the Olympus updater automatically?

    I updated with windows. First from 1.2 to 1.4, then did it over again, and thats when 1.5 appeared in the list.

    Updated using Windows 7. No problems but it went from 1.1 to 1.3 and then from 1.3 to 1.5. Apparently they limit the update to two versions at a time. Don't ask me why I was still at 1.1. :-)

    Same here, except I used an old laptop running XP because I didn't want to clutter up my main machine with the software. The only hiccup was that there are no explicit instructions about what to do on the camera once you get the OK on the LCD. After Googling for the answer for a while out of paranoia, I just turned the camera off.

    I ended up doing this on the MAC laptop. Camera body is at 1.5 now and does seem quieter. I need to go for a little evening walk sometime and shoot with the Leica 25mm f1.4...
