    Just wondered if anyone had come across this issue with the 12-40 Pro.
    The zoom ring keeps turning past the 12 end. At the 40 end at it stops dead, but the other way and the ring just keeps turning. Obviously all the numbers on the ring get out of position.
    Something that Olympus service could sort out?

    That's weird. Definitely call customer support.

    The lens is fully retracted at about 13-14 & then extends a little as you turn the ring to 12. I believe that's normal. the ring doesn't keep turning beyond that tho'.
