    Ok, I have a brand new GX8 and the Panasonic 42.5, Olympus pro 40-150 and the olympus pro 7-14. Well, last week everything was working great. Today, I bring it out and the Olympus lenses are stuck in Manual Focus. But, the Panasonic lens auto focuses perfctly. I'm thinking I changed a setting somewhere and I can't figure out what.

    Any ideas on what's going on

    Thanks

    The Olympus ones have a MF clutch right? Push it back to the AF position. This gets people all the time.

    hey Mark, how does it feel, I mean holding the grip of the GX8 when 40-150 pro is attached? I'm not sure how well non-slr shaped bodies and heavy lenses balance.
