Has anyone experienced this error with the 14-42 EZ (or any other Olympus lens really). I've tried cleaning the contacts, replacing the battery and resetting the camera but I'm still getting this error. The lens will sporadically zoom in and out, but it won't close. And Live View is black.

Other lenses are working, so I'm assuming it's not an issue with my E-M10. I'll try it on my E-M1 when we return home - it happened on vacation :-<

I'm traveling with other lenses and cameras, so it's not a huge deal. But I had been using this lens as my primary lens today and, given that I just got it in February, it's disconcerting.
