    Doesn't say whether it obliterates previous settings though....
    It's quite likely to though. That's when you pencil in your settings on a copy of the (version 2) Menu from your user manual (print off just those PDF pages 146-151) or this spreadsheet http://www.biofos.com/mft/omd_em1_settings.html. It is also a good time to review your settings as well.

    We should also get an updated manual (I hope) with these inclusions.

    Anyhow, I'm looking forward to these updates. Focus Stacking with the macro lens should be really worthwhile & silent shutter will have its uses too, as well as expanded Anti-Shock.

      I think that is referring to using Olympus Capture (tethered) on the PC though.

                Great news from Olympus. Haven't yet tried focus stacking but will be following the FW update in November. It will be interesting to try it on landscapes to avoid the dreaded defraction from smaller aperture values. I presume that you will be able to set the focus increments in the menu.

                      Re: EM-1 firmware update - November 2015

                      Great news all round, and I shall most certainly be using the focus stacking with the 60mm, and the silent shutter E-M1 a lot for street shooting.

                      I was going to investigate focus stacking software, but I won't bother now, and I haven't yet got round to updating to 3.1 from 3, so I might as well wait

                      This makes waiting until next autumn for a mkII '1' a great deal easier, and would seem to mandate that it's going to have a new sensor with improved resolution/ISO/CAF and combined sensor/lens IS (well, if it doesn't I shan't be investing!).

                        HI.
                        I note the interest in "Focus Stacking" i.e multi-images merged to form an image.
                        How about the introduction of "Focus Bracketing" taking multi-images at varying focus points and merging to form an image with greater field depth, as in Marco work.

                          You will get both options & the latter will be ideal for many more focus steps & then processing with suitable software.

                                Thanks for the link, that is a very interesting read.

                                I think this is another innovative game changer from Olympus, roll on November.
