RE: G1
I have several adaptors for my legacy lens and have used only them.
But I just received an M.Zuiko micro 4/3 14-42mm lens.
I changed the setting to no shoot without a lens.
And when I attached the lens I get the check that lens is attached properly note in the viewfinder.
What else do I need to do?

many thanks

Ive had this come up a few times with m43 lenses attached, Ive just turned the camera off and on and it goes away.

Have you turned off the shoot without lens option?

On the Olympus bodies you'll get a warning message when the MZD 14-42mm is retracted but it goes away when you extend the lens to its operating position.

I just went back and put on a legacy lens with adaptor.
Turned on the G1---got the note about checking the lens being attached properly.
Went to the shoot without lens mode and said yes---result - all fine with legacy lens and adaptor.
Then I removed the adaptor/legacy lens.
Put the Micro 4/3 lens back on....changed the shoot without lens to No....
and still same problem--it says "Please check that the lens is attached correctly".

Luckypenguin--that was it!
I extended the lens and the notice went away.
I think I am all set.

Thank you very much! :smile:

Not an answer, but might rule some things out. I mostly shoot my G1 with adapted lenses so it's selected to "shoot without lens". When I attach either of my Panasonic prime lenses (20mm or 45mm) I don't deselect the "shoot without lens" and they function correctly, the only thing I alter is the selector for manual focus, obviously moving it to auto focus.
Might this point to some problem with the actual lens rather than the camera?
