Can I use the EVOLT E-410 to update the firmware of any Four Thirds System-compliant lens?
The answer depends on what company manufactured the lens. Olympus Imaging Corp., Panasonic Corporation and Sigma Corporation offer a joint firmware update service that makes it possible to download and install firmware for one another’s Four Thirds System-compliant lenses when the lenses are attached to any of the companies’ Four Thirds System-compliant cameras. The service is not available for Four Thirds System-compliant lenses manufactured by other companies, such as Kodak, Fuji and Sanyo. Panasonic/Leica and Sigma lenses mounted to an Olympus E-System camera body can be updated using the software packaged with the camera. Click on the appropriate link below for complete instructions.
