    Thanks Walti,

    It was indeed totally painless, including the update to my Oly 60mm macro lens.

    Yes it's quite easy. Use Olympus viewer, and check that the software is up to date first... (update tab) update software it may update the viewer and it will definitely update capture.

    Then plug the camera in and update the firmware, NB the camera has several options and it's "storage" you need to select on the camera! (not the little logo showing the connection from the camera to the computer, that's for capture!)

    Simply use the update tab again select camera, and it will list out the firmware updates available, body and maybe lens too. I changed through all four lenses and updated two as part of this update set.

    Just tried the in body stacking - stupidly easy to use! Even I can do it! VERY impressive!

    All nice and simple...

    EM-1 updated to V4.0
    12-40 and 50-150 both updated
    Both Panny lenses checked as well (I do like the fact you can do this through the Oly software and body!)

    Just had email from Oly confirming v4.0 is out.

    Likewise, don't have time to do it before the weekend, but looking forward to it!

    Well Olympus kept their promise; V4.0 is out and it's here:
    http://www.getolympus.com/upgrade

    Unfortunately I've not got time to carry out the upgrade before work, something to look forward to though for later.

    Aah ok - no I tried to install the updater from OV3. Thanks for the tip!

    Are you checking for updates in OV3? Don't open Updater, just get whatever updates are available in OV3 & it should show you that Oly Updater 1.2.1 is available & let the update happen from there. I'm assuming OV3 will run in El Capitan? BTW, a camera can be updated with OV3 because Updater is an extension of it (as well as running standalone).

    If you open Olympus Viewer 3 and check for updates it should find it for you. Discussed in this thread:

    Hmm, I just tries (again) to download the updater, and it's dated 14/4/14, not 11/11/15. Where did you get the updater from please?

    The latest updater version released 11th Nov does work on El Capitan.

    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.

    May be it could just be an American misinterpretation (they speak a different language to us ) of this,

    ".

    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.
