Olympus has announced firmware updates for the OM-D E-M1 compact system camera (read review), the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3 EZ lens (read review) and the Stylus XZ-2 premium compact camera (read review). Firmware version 1.1 for the Olympus OM-D E-M1 improves Live Bulb image quality while noise reduction is on, enhances AF operation including C-AF, improves image stabilisation in the Sports and Children scene modes, and corrects chromatic aberration caused by the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. Firmware update 1.3 for the Olympus Stylus XZ-2 improves AF performance when you use a single target in a low-light situation. Finally, the firmware upgrade for the 12-50mm lens improves stability when using electronic zoom in combination with Panasonic cameras. As usual those updating their firmware should use the company's free Digital Camera Updater utility.
