On Olympus PEN E-P5 Review preview (494 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paul U: Good God... Based on the positive assessment of dpreview I updated my E-P5 from firmware 1.2 --> 1.4
Two problems now (see this and the following post):

1) It seems firmware 1.4 introduced a severe metering display bug:

The metering is FROZEN on the lcd. E.g. in "A" mode the S value is not being updated, in "S" mode the F value and in "M" mode the metering bar.
An update to the actual value can only be forced by a user interaction like pressing a button on the camera, a user interaction on the lens (if that forces a display update like changing the focal length or bringing up the magnified view when changing the focus) or if the "live histogram" display is active.

BTW: I like the new wifi remote control much more than the first implementation and ironically the metering update works on the smartphone app - but not on the camera itself - the former one being a nice-to-have, the latter one a must-have.

Can anybody reproduce the above issue?
Kind regards, Paul
