you can brick the lens and that may mean bin

I’m curious. Do either Olympus or Panasonic have a history of lens firmware updates that have bricked lenses for all of their users?

I know we hear of this happening occasionally with a lens, or a camera body, and sometimes it’s random. Sometimes it’s because the firmware update was incomplete, or interrupted.
