Olympus Updates Firmware for 3 Zuiko Lenses

Olympus Master Update

Olympus today announced a firmware update for the following three Zuiko Digital Lenses:

• Zuiko Digital 28-84mm equivalent (ED 14-42mm Four Thirds) f3.5-f5.6 lens;
• Zuiko Digital 80-300mm equivalent (ED 40-150mm Four Thirds) f4.0-f5.6 lens;
• Zuiko Digital 50mm equivalent (ED 25mm Four Thirds) f2.8 lens.

Olympus said the firmware update improves the focusing precision of these lenses by using Imager AF in combination with the Panasonic (Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd.) Lumix DMC-L10.

It also enables full compatibility for these lenses with the Lumix DMC-L10, so they can take advantage of the camera’s Imager Auto Focus mode and have full functionality with this Four Thirds standard Digital SLR.

The firmware can be updated through Olympus Master software. Detailed instructions are available from the link below.
