Initialise back to factory settings prior to installing Firmware and you will not have any issues...

Mr Ichiro Kitao, I support the call to upgrade the FZ50.
I will not only buy one but two no questions asked...

Is this official advice from Sony?

What reasons do you have to believe that this will eliminate any potential issues with the update? I'd much rather not have to reset to factory settings.

It didn't occur to me and mine worked fine, startup is very fast. Maybe others have had abort issues?
