    Hi guys,

    I have noticed recently that when I shoot with my 20mm on my g5, the shutter sound appears different on occasion than with my 14, Oly 45, and my 14-140.

    I was worried that something was sticking but the exposure seems fine. The shutter sounds like it is taking longer to close than usual.

    Is this a known 'issue'? Or nothing to worry about?

    I haven't noticed that with my camera, but what if you switched to the electronic shutter and set it to totally silent operation? That would let you know if it was a lens noise or some other part of the camera besides the shutter.

    When I use the electronic shutter, nothing seems to be wrong, when I am using the 20mm, the shutter just seems to take slightly longer to close than usual. Could it be a combination of shutter/aperture that changes the sound of the shutter? Obviously it takes longer at low shutter speeds, but I was noticing this set 1/1000 speed in daylight.
