    I got mine here-
    Joint update service for OLYMPUS E-SYSTEM - OLYMPUS Digital Camera

    It took an incredible hour to update, which is always a worry. An outage means a brick!
    But it is fine and done.

    A quick and dirty test, single point small AF worked accurately in poorish light, and this has been problematic. (50-200)

    It will be interesting to hear if the focus updates improves the C-AF.

    Improved stabilization using electronic zoom cameras Panasonic
    Interesting - how do they mount a zoom camera to a camera

    Just installed. 4 minutes to download, 2 minutes to update.
    I'll be curious to see whether I see any improvements, both in my normal use and in my C-AF experimenting. :-)

    (Oh yeah: I still despise the Olympus mechanism for doing updates.)
