Olympus has announce the availability of firmware updates designed to ensure compatibility with the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 Micro Four Thirds camera which is just starting to ship. An optional adapter tube is required for Four Thirds lenses to be fitted to Micro Four Thirds bodies and full AF is not guaranteed with all lenses. Check out our article that explains this. One surprise inclusion is the Top Pro spec 35-100 f/2.0.
