Panasonic's response regarding LX3 firmware 2.0

This is what Panasonic emailed me about the issues some are experiencing with firmware 2.0 for the LX3.

As many people have previously noted, Panasonic temporarily suspended the availability of v 2.0 firmware for the DMC-LX3. Panasonic's Call Center told me that while using the “Custom Mode” some customers may experience one of the following issues:

1. 1:1 aspect ratio may not function as intended.

2. While zooming, zoom magnification indication may be incorrect, and may stop updating.

3. The on screen guidelines may be off center.

4. The time display for the built-in memory may display the wrong time.

A corrected firmware version should be posted on or about October 20, 2009.

For any customers who have already downloaded and installed v 2.0, and who are experiencing any of these problems, they should "RESET" the camera using the "SETUP MENU" option. This will restore normal operation, but any custom setting will be reset to the factory default settings.

This information will be posted to the Panasonic LUMIX Global Site soon very soon. Customers who have posted this firmware on public file sharing servers should stop distributing this firmware immediately.

Most Important: Please do not to revert back to v 1.3 from v 2.0 as it may cause some side effects.
