The firmware really speeds up the pen's AF. That lead that the panny had over the pens are gone with this upgrade. Well done oly. Now please add a firmware upgrade to allow for the cable or remote shutter release for the epl-1

Has anyone installed the upgrade yet? If so, has the speed really improved 15%, which is what Oly claims? Any extras or flaws introduced by the upgrade?

OK, I've installed the upgrade and and indeed AF is faster. I did not notice any other improvements so what they claimed is what they did...improved AF.

I just installed the upgrade in my E-PL1 today and it works. AF is noticeably faster. Also, Olympus makes firmware upgrades ultra easy - easier than any other camera I've owned.
