PawelN: Yes, I share your opinion - the support is really poor. The instructions update pdf on the website seems unfinished. I managed to install the firmware, but it doesn't seem to have all the features as listed. Some functions are inactive. For example, I can't set the digital zoom mode (or ex tele) in the picture mode - it's there in the menu but is inactive! Other than that all else works, but it would be nice to be able to get back to the previous version of firmware, and I have no idea how to do it. Anyone can advise?

Correction - everything works as expected! I discovered it by chance. It appears that the digital zoom is inactive when the RAW option in file recording is on. When you switch it off, ex tele and digital zoom can indeed be set. It's not that you would use it often, but it is useful on a few occassions.

qj-chaser: Sounds a great idea - I have just spent 2 hours with my GH2 plugged into the computer and totally failed to get the new fiirmware onto it! There is an error message K:\DCIM unavailable, so being canny I decided to load the update onto the SD card and then put it into the camera - still can't get the new firmware onto the camera!

The process is very poor and as a Canon owner who has never had any trouble updating the firmware for my EOS cameras, I am really put off panasonic by this poorly supported update with instructions that do not work!

I uploaded new firmware on GH2, and it was supposed to enable independent setting of digital zoom and ex tele conv in both video and picture modes. It doeasn't! I can't set the digital zoom mode (or ex tele) in the picture mode! Am I missing something? How do I get back to the previous version of firmware?
