Re: Did you perhaps also hear something unusual?

It might just be that your shutter fails to open. This might be audible.Whether it is caused by the new firmware still remains to be seen. When there is a problem with the firmware others should also discover it. I used my E-M5 quite a bit over the weekend but never had any similar issue. Others have reported an issue of having the first image after turning the camera on turning out black, but that does not seem to match the issue you describe. (Their issue went away without turning off the camera.)

I was shooting in a crowded and noisy place, so I can't be sure 'bout the shutter sound when these happened.

And yes, the problem wouldn't go away until restarted the camera.
