    Forum newbie here with an autofocus problem on the 14-42 zuiko lens on an epl-1. :frown: It seems to come and go... Have tried resetting, firmware upgrade, taking out battery, etc. Right now, when I press the button the lens rotates out to find the correct position but then immediately rotates back in to the start position (flush with the bronze ring). I can manually focus no problem.

    Anyone had this problem and resolved it. I've had the camera for a few months now and it seems to only do this occasionally but its stuck doing it right now. Thanks for any help!!

    FYI - talked to Olympus a minute ago and they had me clean the lens contacts with a lens cleaner cloth. Seems to be working now even though visual inspection didn't show anything on the contacts...
