    Re: EM-1 firmware update - November 2015

    Only?
    Sounds pretty good to me!

    I'm not very sensitive to digital noise, but personally I never set an E-M1 above ISO 2000 unless there is absolutely no alternative. (Also my only current use for an e-shutter is for its silence, although I suppose ultra-narrow depth of field in full sunlight without using an ND filter might be useful to me very occasionally.)

        I only ever use full-stop (x2) ISO settings. ISO 2000 is pretty close to ISO 1600, so I'd either stick with that or go to ISO 3200.

          I have no problem with my Auto ISO limit being set to 6400 & if I need something lower then I'll set it (usually at 200) manually.

              I found this link from Olympus showing all the changes for the firmware upgrade on the EM-1, EM-5 Mk2 and EM-10 and the Pro lenses.
              Sorry if it's already been posted.

                Thanks: if that particular one has been posted then I for one missed it.

                Among some other useful clarifications it confirms that, while you need the 60macro, 12-40 or 40-150 to use in-camera focus stacking, multishot focus bracketing will work with any 'standard AF' m4/3 lens: it will at least be convenient for those of us who like the Panny 12-35.

                It remains to be seen how well 8-shot in camera merges will work in practice, and losing 14% total of the vertical and horizontal image dimensions sounds like quite a lot to me.

                  I think perhaps the loss of border might have something to do with the change of coverage as it changes its point of focus & if handheld, allowing for some movement between frames. I don't think it would normally be a problem, particularly with macro subjects because it is not uncommon to be cropping the image a little from the original photo anyhow.

                              May be it could just be an American misinterpretation (they speak a different language to us ) of this,
                              "MF Clutch and Snapshot Focus Disable*7
                              *7 Applicable lens firmware update required for MF Clutch mechanism and Snapshot Focus mechanism.
                              ".

                              But then there is the following from the official announcement from Japan.
                              8) Latest firmware for M.Zuiko Pro and Premium lenses
                              Along with this latest firmware upgrade, latest firmware for the M.Zuiko Pro and Premium lenses will also be released. Aperture drive has been improved for smooth exposure control even when shooting movies in situations with sudden changes in brightness. It also supports for disabling the MF Clutch and Snapshot Focus.
                              It appears to an improvement for video use then.

                                For those Mac users who have upgraded/progressed to OSX El Capitan, be aware that at the moment the Olympus updater will not work with that OS. It does work with Yosemite however. Luckily my iMac is mainly used by my wife so has a dual boot with Windows 10, and the updater does work with that too.
