    Joint update service for Four Thirds lenses

    The “Joint update service for Four Thirds lenses” lets you update your lens by downloading the latest firmware via the Internet simply by connecting the Four Thirds System-compliant camera and lens.

    Previously, lens firmware could only be updated when the lens was mounted on a camera made by the same manufacturer. If the mounted lens was not made by the same manufacturer as the camera, then the lens firmware could not be updated regardless of whether or not the mounted lens is compliant with the Four Thirds System Standard.

    With this new service, it doesn’t matter what combination of camera and lens you use, you will always be able to update the firmware via PC/Internet.
