I did my first lens update yesterday and think I made a mistake. I updated the 9-18 via the Pen-F. All proceeded OK but at one point the software seemed to finish so I closed the Window. That's when the camera screen shut off. It was still in the no entry updating window. It was very quick, less than a minute.

However it seems to be OK, the lens indicates the new firmware and seems to work fine. So I think I got away with it.

I left the process running longer until the OK camera screen for the 60mm Macro.

i don't see why Olympus don't use the SD method like every other manufacturer.

As far as I remember, the Panasonic updates I made to my lenses a few years backs didn't use the "SD method", just the basic download to PC -> download to camera + lens...
