    I bought this lens recently. I just noticed that in manual focus mode no matter which way I turn the focus ring, the focus moves in the same direction. I think the lens is defective, but I just wanted to check whether there was any camera/firmware issue which would cause this. I am using the lens with EPL1.

    Thanks

    Just for a test, go into the menus and reverse the focus direction

    Menu A (AF/MF)/Focus Ring.

    See if that kickstarts the function. Then you can change it back and see if that works.

    Just something to try before you send the lens back.

    That did not help. So I guess I am sending it back!

    Did you select MF in the SCP?
