    Nope. No addition attachments...

    Yah.. the colours look quite ok after the firmware upgrade...
    and the Mr Goh there was quite fast in doing it (but abit gruff. Maybe he had a rough day). I only waited, say, about 30 mins or so. Hehe. pays to go on a weekday.

    Cheers.

    Thanks Jayan.

    The background of the first two pictures look a little noisy. What were the settings? However, the object which you are trying to take is rather clear and the colour is very nice too.

    For the 1st dragon fly shot... settings as follows;

    Exp 1/250
    ISO 100
    FNum F/8

    2nd shot of the whitish flower

    Exp 1/200
    ISO 100
    FNum F/8

    3rd shot of red flower

    Exp 1/8
    ISO 100
    FNum F/8

    4th shot of the dragonfly

    Exp 1/125
    ISO 100
    FNum F/8

    All was shot using a tripod.

    As for the noise in the back ground.. hehe, i was shooting continuously for almost 45 mins, trying to get a decent shot of the dragonfly.... Maybe thats why.. the camera was actually feeling warm to the touch.

    The recept? Hmm.. Anyway, i really think that the front line customer service of Olympus leaves ~ALOT~ to be desired. Nothing personal but all of them (Or at least, those who were directly in contact with customers who were coming in) looked like something crawled up their butt and died.

    As for waiting one week Falcon, you call them and ask to speak directly to Mr Goh. Although he seems pretty gruff, at least he bothered to "entertain" my request.

    For the other staff i spoke to (whose name i failed to note down), he basically told me that it was not useful to upgrade, the image will become duller etc etc....
