Oct 29, 2008 at 11:42 GMT

Olympus has announced firmware updates for several of its lenses to allow their use with the Panasonic DMC-G1. The updated lenses are the 35mm F3.5 Macro, 25mm F2.8 pancake, 35-100mm F2 and 40-150mm F4.0-5.6. Once upgraded, the lenses will be 'compatible' with the G1. (Update: The 25mm pancake and 40-150mm F4.0-5.6 lenses will autofocus on the G1, but it has been confirmed that the 35mm Macro and 35-100mm F2 will not.)
