    after my introduction , i'm already here to ask you an opinion.
    I'm an owner's GF1 and a 20mm lens from two weeks, and i've had a problem, when the camera is switch on , but in stand by (lcd off) , sometimes when i push the button to activate the Af it does'nt respond, the AF seem out of work...:mad:

    I've to take off the battery wait 30sec. return the battery and everything works fine, but the strangeness 's that this trouble happen only when on the 20mm i mount the lens hood , without it the problem 's not show...

    I think that this's a very strange thing !!

    Does anyone have had some similar problem?

    Ciao :smile:

    It's not unusual after the camera has gone into sleep mode, just flick the power button off then on again.

    ianc is correct. This happens even with the Pens so don't feel bad....
    What I do is have the camera to never sleep...... I toggle the screen off and on as needed....
    This way it conserves power and the camera can wake me up when it's ready.....
