    Hi, I have found this problem on my e-pl1 with lenses where the front lens moves when focusing (like the 17mm pancake and 14-42 kit).
    When I turn off the camera, the front lens stay out, it don't return in rest position. I tried with different batteries bue the problem remain.
    Has anyone had this problem?

    You want to look for the menu option for "Reset Lens" and turn it ON.

    On the EM5 it's in GearA -> Reset Lens.

    Brilliant thought there - and I just checked on my E-PL1 and it's the same location in the menu.

    Thank you very much Mikefellh, it work!
    Translation of olympus menus to Italian is bad, "lens reset" is translated to completely different words...
