    Default E-M1 Firmware 3.0 Update experience

    Today I updated the Firmware on my E-M1 to 3.0. The update completed without a hitch, and I was pleasantly surprised that it left all my settings alone. Then came the shock. I attached my Zuiko lenses, using the MMF-3 Adapter, turned the camera on, but the view finders remained dark, and the camera would not respond to any buttons or dials. Re-seating lenses and adapter did not help. My thoughts; I am screwed and probably have to send the camera in for repair.
    Here is a heads up if any of you experiences the same problem. By way of elimination I wanted to take out the possibility that the update is running into a problem with the original Zuiko Lens/Adapter combination. I have also an M-Zuiko 17mm lens, which I attached, and it worked fine! This at least verified that I did not screw up anything during the update procedure.
    To my elation, attaching the Zuiko/Adapter combination again, it worked! The camera is back healthy again. I have no idea if this is a fluke, and it is only happening to me, but here it is and it might help somebody to alleviate some anxiety.

    I can only imagine the heart pounding panic I would suffer if this happened to me, and then the relief when it was all ok.

    My elation was premature!
    This morning the same problem, ("Viewfinders Blank") happened again, and could only be fixed by briefly attaching the M-Zuiko lens, and powering on the camera.
    After that the Zuiko standard lenses worked again as before. Now I will have to get in touch with Olympus to sort this out.

    What a bummer. Mine is no different with 4/3 lenses than before.
    I wonder if it's more likely to be a faulty adapter or contact points need cleaning but you probably tried that.
    Good luck,
    Don

    As another data point, my Mk1 50-200 works normally via the MMF3. CAF frame rate has certainly jumped.

    No problems here on my end. I brought just 3 lenses for my assignments out here in India- 40-150 pro 2.8, 12-40 pro 2.8, and 50/ f2.0 4/3 w/ MM3 adapter. I have 2 bodies- 1 with battery grip and everything fits in my Tenba sling bag. Couldn't be happier and clients are blown away with the images
