In case you missed or did not apply the previous firmware update, you will get these improvements too:

[Version 1.1]

- Enabled use of the Image Stabilization function with non-Four Thirds System interchangeable lenses by inputting a specific focal length.

- Matched the rotation of the dial on the rear of the Power Battery Holder HLD-4 and the movement direction of the AF target.

- Increased the number of storable still pictures by improving the battery check when the Power Battery Holder HLD-4 is attached.

- Focusing now stops immediately when the AF start button (AEL/AFL or Fn button) is released.

- Corrected the phenomenon where the flash control caused an under exposure while using bounce flash at short distances with the FL-50R or FL-36R Electronic Flash.

- Improved selection and prioritization of the central 5 ranging points when shooting in C-AF mode and Dynamic-single Target mode.
