    Olympus E-M5 firmware updates - question

    HI There
    I can't find the answer to this - did they ever do the firmware update with focus peaking?
    . . . . or not?

    all the best

    Just this guy you know

    Not yet, but according to the rumours it will be soon.

    But there is also this 'fake' peaking mode enabled by some art mode trickery that I implemented too a long time ago.

    Kind regards.

    That information is rather stale don't you think (Jan '14)? It would appear that Oly has forgotten about updates!!

    I tried the fake peaking mode in the EM5 and IMHO this is just for nothing. What they really need is peaking implemented as in the EM1, which really works superb. Especially in the manual override mode of AF!

    After all this time 'I hae ma doots'' that we'll see a firmware update that will bring focus peaking. There have been appeals for this for a long time now - so how about it Oly? give us a Fathers Day surprise announcing that it's on the way.
    Ever the optimist.....

    I'm betting we won't see it until a replacement for the EM5 appears. (which may be awhile IMO)
