    Panasonic Announces the Firmware Update Program for DMC-GH2 / G3 / GF3 / GF2 for Enhancing the Functions of the New Power Zoom Lenses. Panasonic announces the new firmware update program for the digital interchangeable lens system cameras DMC-GH2, DMC-G3, DMC-GF3 and DMC-GF2 of LUMIX G Micro System.
    The firmware version 1.1 will be released to enhance the functions when the camera is used with the new power zoom lenses - LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 14-42mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (H-PS14042) and LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm / F4.0-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (H-PS45175).
    The following functions will be available with the new firmware:
    • Display of the local length
      When you zoom, the focal distance is displayed and you can confirm the zoom position.
    • Step zoom
      When you operate the zoom, the zoom will stop at positions corresponding to predetermined distances.
    • Zoom resume
      When you switch the power switch [ON], the zoom positions when you last switched [OFF] are automatically restored.
    • Selectable zoom speed
      Users can select the speed of electric-powered zooming.
    The new firmware program ver.1.1 will be available worldwide from the beginning of October at http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/dsc/.

    Copied from dpreview.

    I wonder if there will be other enhancements?

    HDMI changes are absent. Are they in the dark about it?

    One thing I would love to see is the focus distance in ft or m. Having a [montain]___|___________[flower] diagram is not the mot precise way of focusing.

    @Vitaliy Do you think it's going to pose a problem to update if we used the hack?

    I don't see anything in the official announcement regarding 25p. All I can find other than wishful thinking
    is from the ephotozine interview http://www.ephotozine.com/article/pa...er-zooms-17214
    and he pointedly uses the word "25p MAY be coming". And the guy who said that was just a panasonic product developer.
    I don't get the impression he's any kind of decision maker.

    I think we all hope we get 25p but just be aware it seems to me like panny are giving themselves
    lots of room to wiggle out of it.
