    have a Oly 14-42 1:3.5-5.6 II R that is probably 6 years old; when on camera and powered up, I get the message..."Please check the status of the lens"...I have cleaned the contacts and tried it on another camera with same results....what gives?

    Most likely a failed ribbon cable. Not worth fixing.

    I have one that gives that if I try to focus above 25mm... Got a 14-42mm R and it gives a black screen almos every time I power up the camera...
    Conclusion: I'm going to buy a Panasonic 14-45mm, a Panasonic 14-42mm II or an Oly 14-150mm...
