Updating Firmware ... Yes or No?
Sep 9, 2012

I should probably rephrase that from "yes or no" to what are the benefits and is it something considered necessary to keep a camera in its best operating condition. I'm enjoying my E510 quite a lot, but given that I bought it used and it has a bit of age (in DSLR years anyway), I've been wondering if I should update the firmware (currently 1.2), or just leave well enough alone?

I'd like to get some thoughts and opinions from some of you DSLR veterans (the E510 is my first DSLR). So ... what say you? What's the "low-down" on firmware updates? Do you always update simply because there's an update, or just decide whether you need the update or not?

Thanks in advance.
