If you own an OM System camera and you're also a macOS user, you need to update your firmware right now – otherwise, you might not be able to update it ever again. 

This is due to undisclosed macOS security updates that may interfere with future OM System firmware, preventing you from upgrading your camera in the future. However, by installing to the most recent OM firmware now, you will be able to update your camera even with the changes to macOS.
