    Yes & yes.

    Ver.4.1
    (Feb.4 2016)

    The stability of the image stabilizer's operations has been improved.
    The problem in which the external flash would not fire when shooting in RC mode has been corrected.

    Re: Manual lenses

    Just upgraded yesterday and all was fine. Then I updated the old Olympus lens I had and fine. Then updated my 12-35 Panasonic and the update stuck on the screen. Some lovely @@#$ Olympus tech told me to unplug the camera after locking up for 15 min. Then he had me remove all batteries and re-install. Camera works fine but the 12-35 is BRICKED. I told him he just bricked my lens and he said that "They had no control over Panasonic lenses, to call Panasonic and if they discovered something, please have them call Olympus. Sorry about your lens!"

    BEWARE OF UPDATING PANASONIC LENSES ON 4.1...

    Anyone updated Panasonic lenses on EM-1 on 4.0? Anyone on 4.1?

    That was rather crook then! I hope that can be sorted OK then.

    Maybe you can read the posts in these threads too.

    Thanks for the links Ross. I would not doubt that the only way this will be resolved involves $$$ (out of my pocket). Very reluctant to try another Panasonic lens...

    Re: Manual lenses

    Well, I took the lens in to fix, but got the guts up to try the 35-100 and it worked, so looks like nothing wrong with the upgrade.
    I think the problem seems to stem from auto lenses not making or losing contact with the new camera. Seems as though I had trouble with a lot of lenses at the start, but they mostly all seem to work after repeatedly mounting and dismounting...just kinda wearing everything in. A costly lesson learned...
