Just rotten luck I suppose. It's "supposed" to be 1 month old, and it looks in good condition but the AF is faulty. It just racks back and forward and then gives up. I've tried it on three Pen bodies. All my other lenses work just fine. manual focus is OK but that's not going to help me when I use it in a housing.

So my options are to return it or have it fixed (under warranty?).

But before I send it off, I'd like to reload the firmware if that is possible. It's on 1.0 and I don't think there's an upgrade. Does anyone know if it's possible to reload the firmware without taking it to Olympus?

It's worth a shot, but the Olympus updater software probably will just say there are no updates available for the lens and the 1.0 firmware does not appear to be downloadable.

Thanks. Have done that. I have sent an email to Olympus to see if it's possible to reload firmware and bypass the updater. We'll see...
