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...

Yes, Panasonic and other brand lenses are updated via the USB method if using an Olympus body.

The reverse is when using a Panasonic body and Olympus lenses, then you have to use the pre-historic SD card transfer method.

Eithe way beats an unnecessary risk of "bricking" a product in my view.
