    I swap lenses frequently (with legacy lenses) and the only native m43 lens I have is the MK1 kit lens. Sometimes when reattaching the lens it won't work until I reattach and detach it again several times with the camera on. Any idea's why?

    Sidenote: Can't wait for my tax return so I can actually purchase a native lens and use autofocus! I'm thinking about one of the new sigma lenses after using a 35mm Takumar extensively on my Spotmatic and loving the FOV.

    Sounds like a communication issue. Try using cleaning the electrical contacts on the lens mount and the body. Also, make sure you're not holding the lens release button down when you are attaching the lens.

    EPL1 and kit lens had a firmware upgrade, make sure it's running the latest firmware. 1.1 dealt with AF and 1.2 gave it compatibility with the VF3.
