Re: OM-D FW updated to 1.5-- good news for onward fw upgrades (e.g. lenses)

Nothing has changed I suspect; the "black screen" happens only while the update is being downloaded, the warning screen appears after download and as the firmware is sent to the camera.

I updated a lens yesterday. The black screen lasted about two minutes while the firmware was download. The verboten screen was a little over a minute.

I've seen the black screen last 45 minutes for my EPL1 and a slow wireless connection.

It now seems like some are thinking the camera can be safely disconnected during the black screen phase. I wouldn't do it, but I've read several posts from MAC users where the process did hang and they had to that.
