Great job, Olympus, you fixed the E-M5 humming problem!
Oct 2, 2012

The humming was something that bothered me quite a bit, I have what I believe is fairly good hearing so I heard it very distinctly.

Now with the 1.5 firmware update it has all but disappeared, and only appears when shutter is half-pressed.

I also did noise measurements using an Android app before and after applying the firmware.

It went from 26 db (camera off) to 30 db (1.2 firmware camera on) to 27 db (1.5 firmware camera on). Decibels are logarithmic so it is a big improvement.

Excellent job, Olympus, and please give us a nice 1.6 upgrade, with focus peaking and other nice features that have been collected on this forum!
