    Hey guys,

    I posted this on DPreview and I still don't see my post showing so I thought I'd try here.

    My 12-40mm lens won't auto focus for some reason. If I swap to another lens, it works like normal, half press and focus square turns green etc. With the 12-40mm the square is just grey no matter what I do. Does anyone know what I did, or what this could be caused by?

    I have menu dived and checked and re-checked my AF settings, mounted/unmounted the lens a few times, just don't know how to fix this. Hoping I'm just an idiot and it something simple.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, the focus ring on the front of the lens can be moved forwards / backwards. In backwards position lens is ion manual focus mode. Push focus ring forwards.
    Hope this helps

    OMG...Bless you. The worst part is this happened to me the first time I used my 12mm, I can't believe I forgot to check that!!!

    Thanks again!
