    My Panasonic 20mm (version 1) will no longer focus in auto, but it does manual focus. I've tried cleaning contacts, but still nothing.
    Anyone have a ballpark figure on how much it would cost to repair? I'm trying to decide it if is worth repairing, or if I just need to replace it.
    Thanks!

    Have you tested it with another body?

    Yes, both Olympus OMD bodies though. I about freaked when I thought it was my EM-1 malfunctioning.

    If it hasn't the latest firmware version you could try to flash it. Mine kept freezing randomly during AF and the update solved the problem.
    I do not remember if you can "reflash" the current version, but if possibile I'd try that too.
