    Once in a while, not often, my 14-150 won't focus. It just hunts close to far, but never achieves focus. If I take the lens off and back on the problem goes away. Anybody seen this problem, maybe on other lenses? (On an E-M10)

    I have the same issue with the Oly 12-50 on my EM5. Sent it into Olympus and they cannot re-create the issue - tried it on 3 different bodies they said.

    They recommend ensuring that the camera and lens contacts are clean.

    I have 3 other lenses and none of them have this issue...so if it is contacts, it is on the 12-50. Thankfully I don't use it much.

    I get around the issue just by powering down and back on.
