Retro lens focus in new Olympus firmware
Owners of Olympus E3 and E510 can use their cameras' in-body image stabilization with pre-four-thirds lenses with the latest firmware update. The long called-for addition lets users specify the focal length of the lens being attached so that the camera can apply appropriate stabilization.
Firmware version 1.3 for the E510 adds the new functionaility, while version 1.1 firmware for the E3 also corrects a handful of other niggles. Click here for instructions on how the new system works. Updates, as usual, are downloaded through the Olympus Master software.
