    I love my new GM5...

    I've just bought myself the 45-175mm and 25mm 1.4 for Christmas but still have use of the 12-32mm kit lens as it is so small and convenient for legging it around with.

    Hence the slight issue I have. The lens used to be usable for video, allowing me to relatively smoothly zoom in and out during capture...

    The lens has developed a stickiness now meaning it is nigh on impossible to do this.

    Has anyone had the same issue?! And is there anyway I can get it back to the super smooth motion it used to have?

    My Dad just bought an early GM1 with the same lens and it is silky smooth in zooming, so it's not my imagination! :(

    Ta in advance...
