    I am hoping someone has some experience with this problem. My new 12mm Olympus lens stopped auto focusing. Still works fine manually but not in auto focus. Same story on two different E-M5 bodies. My other lens work fine on both bodies.

    Ideas?

    The present.
    The focus ring has been placed in manual focus mode. If you look at the lens you'll see there is a focus scale exposed... slide the focus ring forward (away from the camera body) and over that focus scale and AF will work again.

    Kind regards,

    woof!

    What woof said is my best guess as well.

    Wonderful!!!!! Problem solved. When all else fails get a bigger hammer or read the instructions.

    Thanks
